ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Eyewitnesses have recounted their horror at waking up to a fire that engulfed a 24-storey block of flats in central London in the early hours of Wednesday (June 14). "I ran outside and then looked up and it was just ablaze. It was an absolute nightmare. It was like something out of a horror movie," said one resident. Flames licked up the sides of the Grenfell tower block in the north Kensington area as 200 firefighters, backed up by 40 fire engines, fought the blaze for hours. An unconfirmed number of people have been killed so far, with at least 50 more injured.
