Adele visits Grenfell Tower firefighters for a “tea and a cuddle”

The superstar singer did her best to comfort the heroic team

Adele has visited the firefighters who helped to save residents at Grenfell Tower on Wednesday 14 June.

The Someone Like You hitmaker paid them a visit to pay her respects, and have a “cup of tea and a cuddle”.

Adele made their day as she walked into Chelsea Fire Station, and one of the wardens was so touched by her huge gesture that he shared it on Facebook so everybody knew what a sweetie she is!

Rob Petty shared a few photos of his team and the 29-year-old singer, and they all look over the moon.

He wrote: “Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Fire Station for a cup of tea and a cuddle. X”

Right after the disaster, Adele also went down to visit the hundreds who were made homeless and had lost their friends and family in the devastating fire.

She was photographed giving out hugs to anybody that needed one, and has been praised for her response considering her huge success.

Stuart Cundy, the Metropolitan Police Commander, has said: “I believe there are 79 people that are either dead, or missing, and sadly I have to presume are dead.”

He then said that five of the dead have been identified but that it will be a slow and painstaking task to identify the others.

As the fire was so destructive, it may be that some bodies will never be identified.

A minute’s silence was held on Monday to honour those who had died, and many firefighters attended to pay their respects.

One particular firefighter left a heartbreaking tribute and apologised for “not being enough”.

But all the team have got is praise, as they risked their own lives to save others.

On Sunday, hundreds of people applauded them as they arrived at the scene on Father’s Day, where many dads who were lost in the blaze were remembered.
