Daily Express says FIREFIGHTERS are battling a blaze at a London block of flats near Grenfell Tower.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
An eyewitness, who rang the emergency services, told Express.co.uk: “My neighbour knocked on my door and she told me there was smoke.
“When I looked up I could see it and I rang 999. They’ve said it’s okay now but it’s very scary.”
