Adele was among the people who gathered on Wednesday night close to a London tower block that was destroyed in a catastrophic fire, according to posts on social media. The fire swept through the 27-storey Grenfell Tower block in just 15 minutes after a faulty fridge exploded, in what could be one of the worst in British history amid fears nobody on its top three floors survived. Adele arrived unannounced and was spotted by Instagram user FourMee, who posted three blurry photographs.
FourMee said the singer’s husband Simon Konecki was also with her. Adele obviously wanted to keep her visit low key and personal. Witnesses say she was emotional and reportedly ‘hugged and comforted’ victims. Her Twitter account made no reference to it. Her fans praised her compassion and discretion on social media.
