Adele was spotted giving hugs at London's Grenfell Tower after deadly fire

Rita Ora followed in Adele's footsteps and arrived at the Grenfell Tower donations site to help with sifting through the bags of clothes and food.

Fellow singer Adele was also spotted at Wednesday night's vigil, comforting those affected by the blaze that killed 12 people and injured dozens more. "This is my neighbourhood, I can't believe this is happening", she posted. My heart is beating so fast.

"Adele is at now at Grenfell Tower asking if anyone needs help that was affected by the fire", a fan account Tweeted.

The fire swept through the 27-storey 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. "I used to play in that block".

"Shocked and devastated to hear this bad news".

Singer Rita Ora helped sort donations for the victims of Grenfell Tower fire.

Fan account Adele Union also claimed on Twitter that she'd been seen in the early hours of Thursday morning (15 June) "asking if anyone needs help" at the scene, and "going around and hugging everyone she could to comfort them".

She was notably wearing a black abaya, a simple, robe-like dress, worn by some women in parts of the Muslim world, and kept a low profile at the scene.

Other Twitter users who discovered Adele's attendance quickly penned: 'i'm so proud stanning a humble & genuine human being like you. i love you so much, queen ❤️ @Adele.

Adele and husband Simon Konecki were, according to eyewitness reports, "offering her support to everyone affected by the tragedy". Respect to both of you.
