    To date, London’s worst tower block fire took place in Camberwell, south London, in July 2009. Six people – three women and three children – were killed when fire swept through the 14-storey Lakanal House. At least 20 people were injured.

    Grenfell Tower, on the Lancaster West Estate in North Kensington, has been undergoing major refurbishment.

    The tower block is managed by the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO) on behalf of the Council and contains 120 homes. It was built in 1974.

    One of the BBC reporters said people were calling loved ones on their mobile phones.

    This is all so scary and shocking and heartbreaking.

    The large scale works included the installation of insulated exterior cladding, new double glazed windows and a new communal heating system. A new communal entrance has been created and there are new facilities for returning tenants, Grenfell Under 3s Nursery and Dale Youth Amateur Boxing Club. Nine much needed new homes have been created from unused spaces.
