If that's true then there will be a number of fatalities I would think.

Unluckily looks that way with the fire burning heavily through the tower

Live news really is shite.

Sky news reporter states eyewitness saw emergency services arrive at the scene. No fucking shit Sherlock considering there is about 40 fire appliances at the scene

It is being reported on 5live (by someone who stays in a nearby tower). That the fire brigade have been ordered to move away from the building as bits of it are starting to fall off.

Got to think the fire brigade will let that just burn out.  Fears of it collapsing and the low chance of finding anyone alive in that.

News saying police are telling people still in building to cover face with wet cloth and get out. There is no danger anyone still in there is still allve.

How long will it take Isis to claim responsibility?

A number of people are blaming it on them

Reports of the building having previous electrical wiring issues. Also claims from rescuers that were inside the building that there were no fire alarms going off.

Horrific.

Looking at the building on the news the death toll will be high

I thought all those high rise flats were designed specifically to stop fire spreading? As in, if there was a fire in one of the flats it would be contained in that flat alone.

Don't know the first thing about it but I was always under that impression for some reason.

The local authority recently completed refurbishing the block. Can't help but think that further down the line there will be corporate manslaughter charges brought if it turns out to be faulty wiring.

In other news my missus is worried about the amount of cats that will be in the building. Fucking hell.

You would have thought so, wouldn't you?

Depends on the age and design of the building.
