Adele visits Grenfell Tower to comfort and pay respect to victims of deadly fire

The devastating blaze in Grenfell Tower has sent shockwaves across the UK. The deadly blaze, which has so far claimed the lives of 12 people and left many more injured and homeless, has brought attention to what some people claim was a catalogue of errors. Those included disregarded warnings from residents and claims that the government failed to complete a fire safety review that could have helped rescue those inside.

As news of the tragedy spread, artists from the music world and beyond reacted and extended their condolences, including Adele who visited the scene to pay respects to the victims and offer support to survivors. A Tottenham native and passionate Londoner, the singer kept a low profile with husband Simon Konecki and was said to be comforting people at the scene.


But Adele wasn’t the only entertainer to offer their support. In the aftermath, many, including local residents, have taken to social media to express their thoughts and support.

 "This is my neighbourhood, I can't believe this is happening," Rita Ora posted. "My prayers are with everybody involved my heart is beating so fast. I used to play in that block - I want to do all I can do to help."
