Many were injured as a huge fire engulfed a 27-storey block of flats in London.
London Fire Brigade said the fire had engulfed all floors from the second to the top of the Grenfell Tower.
Police said "a number of people are being treated for a range of injuries".
Large pieces of debris could be seen falling from Grenfell Tower, a 1970s block in north Kensington area.
The ambulance service said it had sent more than 20 ambulance crews to the scene.
Residents said repairs, including the addition of some sort of cladding, had been made to the exterior of the block recently.
Residents related how they woke up to the smell of burning and rushed to escape through smoke-filled corridors.
