Grenfell Tower, a 120-apartment tower block in west London, has been completely engulfed in a blaze that started and rapidly spread on Tuesday night. Reports on social media suggest people have been trapped inside.

The number of people receiving medical care has risen to 50, the London Ambulance Service said. Earlier, the fire commissioner and Metropolitan police confirmed that there are fatalities, though the exact number is yet to be established.
