Tower Hamlets Council has installed collections bins across the borough where people can donate items for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

The blaze, which swept through the 24-storey building in Ladbroke Grove, has killed at least people and left 20 fighting for their lives.

The death toll is sadly expected to rise.

Hundreds of survivors have been left homeless with just the clothes on their back.

Residents are being encouraged to donate clean clothes, children’s toys, bottled water, baby equipment including clothing and nappies, toiletries and unperishable food.

The bins are at the front of Tower Hamlets Idea Stores, at all leisure centres in the borough and at the Town Hall, Mulberry Place.
