Singer Adele joins vigil for victims of London tower block inferno

NewsCelebs offer help to those affected by West London fire

The Someone Like You singer arrived with her husband Simon Konecki to show support to those who were effected by the tragedy, and the 29-year-old was spotted walking amongst the crowd and asking people if they needed help.

A devastating fire destroyed the 24 storey Grenfell Tower block in North Kensington where 600 residents were thought to be sleeping as the inferno took hold.

12 people are known to have died after fire engulfed Grenfell Tower in White City after 1am - but Scotland Yard expects the death toll to rise and some claim the actual number could be over 50.

Rita is keen to do whatever she can to help victims. The Grenfell Tower blaze was particularly personal to her as it occurred in her neighbourhood.

Captioning her first post, Rita wrote: "On my way to Rugby Club, Walker Road to help out - please come and help if you can".

She was notably wearing a black abaya, a simple, robe-like dress, worn by some women in parts of the Muslim world, and kept a low profile at the scene.

On Wednesday night, the singer shared several updates on Instagram Stories during her visit.

Adele was also spotted helping out at the site, comforting victims with hugs and kinds words. "My prayers are with everybody involved, my heart is beating so fast", she said.

When news of the tragic Grenfell Tower fire broke yesterday, singer Rita Ora vowed to do everything that she could to help the many victims of the blaze.

'It's very unusual not being home, all I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family.

'I used to play in that block - I want to do all I can do to help'.
