The police cordon surrounding a huge tower block fire in Notting Hill has been pushed back amid concerns the whole building could collapse.
An exclusion zone was set up overnight as flames raged through the 24-storey Grenfell Tower near Ladbroke Grove causing debris to crash down the side of the building.
As firefighters continued to battle the flames on Wednesday morning the cordon has reportedly been widened over concerns about the stability of the building, which contains 120 flats and is located in a densely populated area of west London.
A Met Police spokeswoman confirmed there were “significant cordons” in place and said they would release a further statement later.
