Statement on the Shepherd’s Bush fire

Published on: Wednesday 22 June 2022

Our thoughts are with those affected by the fire in a high-rise residential building in Shepherd's Bush today, which is close to Grenfell Tower.

The fire broke out on the 12th floor of the high rise tower in Queensdale Crescent at 9.20am this morning. 

Although the London Fire Brigade has confirmed the fire is now under control and the majority of residents were safely evacuated (although one person is in hospital), we are aware that survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire, the bereaved, and the wider community will be upset and unsettled by today’s events.

 The NHS is here to support everyone affected by Grenfell, so please don’t hesitate to reach out for the emotional, physical and wellbeing support that’s available.
