"No integrated fire alarms systems it's just everyones house for itself"

Lucky he got out, if he hadnt look out the window and saw fire engines it might have been too late

10m in refurbishments and basically put a load of plastic everywhere apparently there wasn't even a fire alarm in the block.

This has not been good for Tories whatsoever

Been a bad year generally for London so far

I don't even care about the politics, anyone who's lived in a block before knows that you don't live as a stranger. This is basically a community that's been ravaged by a completely avoidable fire. Fucking heartbreaking.

whoever is responsible needs to be prosecuted for this.

not just investigation and resignation.

London needs to go back to its riot days for these people to listen

Was watching live streams on twitter of this till 5am last night, was mad to see people hanging out their windows, the fire brigade had these tall ladders with hoses on them but could reach nowhere near the top. Id expect death toll to get pretty high. Awful.

Insane to think in london 2017 something like this can still happen.

caller on lbc said the old guy he rescued said he wouldnt have had a clue the fire was happening, if it wasn't for his neighbour that knocked on his door. 

He also said same neighbour claimed accidentally left his gas on and it's what started the fire.

I don't even know how anyone will live with such guilt.

Was my first thought

 Lot of respect for the fire services attending the scene. 

Contemplated joining the fire services when i was younger but tbh couldn't guarentee I'd be jumping up with a willingness to run into a burning building.

About a decade ago my grandma lived on the 24th floor.... defo falling out the window was the biggest fear the building had decent fire saftey... think a fire broke out(gas explosion) in one of the neighbouring flats and it was contained just to that flat and the ones either side had some damage....

personally i think high rise flats will ease londons housing crisis BUT you cant take short cuts especially when it comes to fire saftey 

someone(with authority) has to be held accountable for this.

Disgusting that this happens in this day and age. A block housing hundreds of people refurbished with plastic cadding in Londons most wealthy borough.... whoever made that call put greed over peoples lives and made 100s homeless and had them throwing their babies out of the window

Some cheeky property developers are probably already bidding for the land to turn into luxury flats
