London Fire

Anyone tuning into the news this morning, especially here in the UK, will see the coverage of a horrendous fire in a 24 storey block of flats.
It was what I came downstairs to and I could not believe it was here in the UK, not somewhere abroad.

My thoughts are with everyone concerned, from the residents and their families to our skilled professionals as they fight to bring the fire under control, the ambulance services and our police.

It doesn’t matter what race, religion, skin colour or background, everyone here is affected and the generosity in respect of blankets, food, shelter and support is what community spirit is all about.

The cause isn’t known yet but it has devastated so many who have lost everything.

    Fires can be so devastating and we, and probably every other country, get our fair share of them. Our thoughts and prayers are with those in London. Hopefully there are no casualties. Hopefully the cause can be determined. Hopefully that knowledge will prevent a similar occurrence.

    • Lots of hearsay at the moment, but they have now confirmed fatalities. It would apear that the fire spread so quickly due to plastic cladding on the outside which they are saying was part of a £10M refurbishment last year.

  2. I was horrified to catch the news and this devastating scene before I went to bed Nast night. Sending prayers.

  3. My prayers go out to all those effected in recent horrors that GameCircle in England.
