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.


Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs and and pay to keep it going with hosting fees, URL fees and Theme costs adding into the hundreds of pounds.

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.
