Where is Grenfell Tower?
The 24-storey tower block is in North Kensington, an area of West London, close to Latimer Road Station.
It can be accessed by the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines on the London Underground.
The large building is just off the A40 and behind the Kensington Aldridge Academy.
It is also close to Westfield Shopping Centre and near to the affluent area of Notting Hill.
The tower, built in 1974 by Kensington and Chelsea Borough Council, recently underwent an multi-million pound redevelopment that was completed in May.
It is part of the Lancaster West Estate – an inner-city social housing complex of nearly 1,000 homes.

The deadly Grenfell Tower blaze started in a Hotpoint fridge freezer – model number FF175BP.
It is suspected that a fault caused the appliance to catch alight in a fourth floor flat.
Prime Minister Theresa May ordered an immediate examination by experts of the fridge freezer involved in the blaze.
Hotpoint has also said it is working with police to assist with their ongoing investigation adding that a full examination of the fridge and scene by the company has not yet been able to take place.
Firefighters did put out the appliance blaze in the flat after the owner raised the alarm, but flames still spread up the 24-storey building on June 14, fire sources told the BBC.

What happened in the London fire?
A large fire broke out in the building just after 1am on the morning of Wednesday 14 June 2017.
It spread quickly to cover an area from around the second floor to the top floor.
There are 120 homes in the tower block, with at least 350 people thought to be inside when the blaze began. Some were still trapped hours later.
Desperate people trapped inside the large building were heard screaming for help as the fire took hold.
Horrified witnesses said they could see people waving sheets out of the windows as they called to be rescued, with some jumping from the building.
The London Ambulance Service sent 20 crews of 100 medics to the West London tower block.
About 200 firefighters battled the fire, with 40 engines sent to the scene after the emergency services were alerted at 12.54am.
Smoke could be seen filling the sky across West London from miles away hours after the blaze broke out.
Nearby community centres and churches opened up to provide shelter for people evacuated from their homes as firefighters faced the grim task of removing bodies from the gutted tower.
Police say around 80 people are now confirmed dead or missing after Grenfell Tower fire
