Breaking News: Police: 30 people confirmed dead in GrenfellTower fire

Red Cross creates relief fund

Cross launched an appeal today to raise money to help people affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower.

The charity has been asked by Kensington and Chelsea council to help co-ordinate the relief operation and will follow a similar model to the fund formed after the Manchester terrorist attack just a few weeks ago.

Offers of help and bundles of food and clothing have been arriving non-stop for people caught up in the fire.
