Adele visits Grenfell Tower firefighters

Adele has visited a London fire station to offer "tea and a cuddle" to firefighters who battled the Grenfell Tower blaze.

The Hello singer was photographed at the Chelsea Fire Station in west London on Monday, where she met firefighter Rob Petty and others.

"Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Firestation for a cup of tea and a cuddle," Mr Petty wrote on his Facebook page, sharing three photos with the singer.

"She came in with loads of cakes. Lovely girl, genuinely grounded & interested and humbled. Beautiful."

Last week Adele visited the scene of the devastating fire that engulfed the 24-storey building, killing at least 79 people.

She was pictured in front of the tower on Wednesday, while pop star Rita Ora was also seen carrying water and supplies around the site.

Adele and her husband Simon Konecki visited the block again days later to offer their support to the community, with witnesses saying "she was going around and hugging everyone".

"She was so nice. She was going around talking to people," said witness Tom Maughan.

"She tried to keep it on the low but I shouted 'Adele!' and she said 'No, it's not me'. It was about 1am, she came with her husband.

"She didn't have any security with her, it was a bit surprising. She wasn't hiding her face."
