People across the borough have come in great numbers to help out those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire, giving food, clothing and toiletries to those in need.

Some of the places people are sheltering, including churches and other religious buildings, have had to turn away people because there are so many volunteers.

They have said more help will be needed as the residents get back on their feet.

In Hatch End, St Teresa's School has collecting various items including toothbrushes, nappies, deodorants, towels and sleeping bags.

What happened in the London fire?

A large fire broke out in Grenfell Tower near Latimer Road Station just after 1am this morning, before spreading quickly to cover an area from the second floor to the top floor.

There are 120 homes in the tower block, with several hundred people thought to be in the block when the blaze began.

Some were still inside hours later as it was later confirmed six people had died – this figure is expected to rise as the “complex recovery operation” begins.

The cause of the fire has not been confirmed – although one witness said it was started by his neighbour’s fridge exploding – as it was declared a major incident.

Horrified witnesses said they could see people waving sheets out of the windows as they called to be rescued, with some jumping from the building.
