Residents who are safe following the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy are being asked to make themselves known to the authorities, so they can be checked off against a list of people who lived in the building.

At least six people are known to have died - but with that number "likely to rise" - in the tower block inferno in North Kensington.

Fire crews were called to the scene just before 1am on Wednesday, but the flames engulfed the building from the second floor to the top.

Metropolitan Police said it was "really important we account for all those in the building".

Any "displaced" residents were asked to go to the Rugby Portobello Trust in Walmer Road.

A tweet posted by the Met said: "If you lived in the block, make yourself known [at the Rugby Portobello Trust] so that we know you are safe".

Police said the assistance centre was "for evacuated people only".

Anyone who cannot get there to make themselves known should call the casualty bureau on 0800 0961 233 or speak to a police officer.
