The Royal Free Hospital has been supporting the major incident response following the fire at Grenfell Tower in Latimer Road during the early hours of this morning.
We have treated 12 patients, mostly for the effects of smoke inhalation.
Our A&E department is extremely busy and we would urge people to attend only if it is an emergency. Please use your local walk-in centre or GP if possible for all non-emergency issues.
The vast majority of our planned activity has gone ahead today.
The Metropolitan Police have set up a helpline for concerned relatives. The number is 0800 0961 233 or 0207 158 0197.
