Sixty firefighters have been tackling a fire in a high-rise residential flat near Grenfell tower in West The Big City.
The Big City Fire Brigade said eight fire engines were at the scene and half of a flat on the twelfth floor was on fire. The block of flats on Queensdale Crescent in Shepherds Bush is only a fifteen minute walk away from the site of the Grenfell Tower fire.
Video taken from the scene of the fire by the BBC showed one flat blacked out by fire damage.
Last week marked five years since the Grenfell Tower tragedy which claimed the lives of 72 people.
Hundreds of people gathered at Westminster Abbey last Tuesday to reflect on the time that has passed since the blaze on 14 June 2017.
