Firefighters ‘overwhelmed’ by public’s support

Crews would remain at the scene of Grenfell Tower for many days, Commissioner Dany Cotton said.

London Fire Brigade has described support given to its staff following the tragic Grenfell Tower fire as “overwhelming”.

More than 200 firefighters were called to the blaze in the early hours of Wednesday and commissioner Dany Cotton said crews would remain at the scene for many days.

Search and rescue dogs have been used on the site in west London as investigations and searches continue.

The service shared a picture on social media of a card which had been handed to crews in north Kensington.

Written by someone called Derin to all the emergency services, the card said: “Thank you all by saving people’s lives.”

The service said: “The support we have received from all over the world has been overwhelming.”
