"I would like to assure everybody that Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service carries out regular inspections of high-rise buildings in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes, and that our crews regularly carry out training at them. I can not confirm the number at this time due to the size and complexity of this building, and it would clearly be wrong for me to speculate further".
Khan, the London mayor, said questions needed to be answered about the safety of tower blocks after some residents said they had been advised they should stay in their flats in the event of a fire. Help! Help!' The fire brigade could only help downstairs.
A website run by the "Grenfell Action Group" said residents of the tower had expressed concerns over the safety of the building, specifically pointing to fire risks.
Around 200 firefighters and around 40 fire engines remain at the scene this afternoon, with the blaze still smouldering and many tenants unaccounted for. "We will cooperate with the relevant authorities and emergency services and fully support their enquiries into the causes of this fire at the appropriate time", the company said in a statement. "I was yelling at everyone to get down and they were saying 'We can't leave our apartments, the smoke is too bad on the corridors'".

He said: "We pray for all the residents of Grenfell Tower".
She said: "In my 29 years in the London Fire Brigade I have never seen a fire of this nature". The housing block, built in 1974, was recently upgraded at a cost of 8.6 million pounds ($11 million), with work finishing in May 2016, according to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
It said the fire engulfed all floors from the second to the top of the block which contained 120 apartments.
She also claimed a resident made a "homemade parachute" to lower himself out of the window as the fire raged.
Officials did not immediately know what caused the blaze. This means that (unless there is a fire in your flat or in the hallway outside your flat) you should stay inside your flat. Because of the early hour of this fire, many residents were home asleep, reports Fox & Friends live on Wednesday morning.
