    This is horrifying! Still burning, people trapped. I've seen video on Twitter with people screaming for help. 😢

    Desperate residents are building ropes from sheets in an attempt to escape from their windows as a huge inferno is engulfing a tower block in west London.
    "The 'horrendous' blaze has struck the 27-storey Grenfell Tower in Latimer Road, White City, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
    The fire has spread from the second floor to the roof of the enormous towering block, with 200 firefighters struggling to bring it under control."

    It looks horrendous I'm praying for everyone.

    London has had too much tragedy. I guess it's wishful thinking to hope there are no casualties. Sending love ...

    Residents continue to be evacuated from the tower block fire in #NorthKensington. A number of people being treated for a range of injuries.

    The Sky News live shot is terrifying.
