Fire hits tower block

This is a bit out of this sites normal patch but a flat is on fire at a tower block in Edmonton with smoke visible for miles around.

Hopefully the cladding is not flammable as at Grenfell or many other new builds.

It’s worrying to see another fire given the number of blocks that still havn’t replaced flammable cladding, including examples in Greenwich such as Greenwich Square and New Capital Quay.

Videos also show emergency services struggling to reach the site due to traffic.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
