Flames STILL burning at Grenfell Tower block nearly 24 hours after leaving 12 dead


Flames are STILL visible at the Grenfell Tower block – almost 24 hours after the devastating fire began.

Hundreds of firefighters have been tackling the blaze which broke out in west London just before 1am on Wednesday.

The death toll stands at 12 so far, but grim-faced fire bosses have said they expect that to increase.

In horrific scenes reminiscent of 9/11, firefighters raced up stairwells filled in smoke in a desperate bid to rescue people.

More than 70 are in hospital, with 18 in critical care, in what could become one of the deadliest fires in British history.

The Prime Minister Theresa May has launched an urgent investigation to find out what happened amid claims warnings form residents over fire safety were ignored.
