Offers of help from community as tower blocks evacuated


Members of the London community have rallied round to offer their help to residents of the evacuated Chalcots estate.

The evacuation was sparked following an inspection that found the five tower blocks on the estate used cladding similar to that on Grenfell Tower in Kensington, where a fire killed at least 79 people.

People living in more than 800 homes were told they must pack up and leave late on Friday so that “urgent fire safety works” can take place.

In the midst of the evacuation restaurants in the area including Mia Restaurant and Namaaste Kitchen sent out tweets offering food to those affected.
