Following the events in North Kensington yesterday, an appeal led by Heart Radio has seen Cambridge businesses unite in support, requesting donations of items to those left stranded following the Grenfell Tower Fire.

Residents in the 24-storey Grenfell Tower were evacuated from their flats in the burning building in the early hours of yesterday morning, and with smoke still bellowing out of the structure, many residents were forced to sleep in makeshift shelters last night.

At least 70 people have been confirmed to have been taken to five hospitals in London for treatment, with many more expected to be announced in the near future.
