Adele has visited Chelsea fire station to give the brave men and women who tackled the Grenfell fire ‘a cuddle’ and some cake.
The BBC reports that she enjoyed tea and cake with the firefighters yesterday morning. The news organisation quoted Station manager Ben King as saying: "She just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she has some cakes for us. "So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said: 'Hi, I'm Adele'. Everyone was so shocked. "She came in, came up to the mess and had a cup of tea with the watch and then she joined us for the minute's silence. "We have had so much support for the local community and we cannot thank everyone enough." It’s nearly a week since fire raged through Grenfell Tower in North Kensington claiming the lives of at least 79 people, with that figure expected to rise. 45 fire engines were involved in tackling the blaze, with fire fighters said to have gone above and beyond their duty to try and rescue people trapped inside the burning building. Firefighter Rob Petty shared photos of Adele's Visit on Facebook, writing alongside them: "Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Firestation for a cup of tea and a cuddle." He added: "She came in with loads of cakes. Lovely girl, genuinely grounded & interested and humbled. Beautiful." Global superstar Adele was also spotted comforting victims and local residents outside the tower last week, as was fellow pop star Rita Ora. Simon Cowell has said he's organising a charity single to raise money for the people made homeless by the fire. It's believed singers including Louisa Johnson, Leona Lewis and Paloma Faith are involved.
