Actor Tom Hardy has launched an emergency JustGiving fundraising appeal to raise money for the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation to help victims. It has already raised more than £15,000.

On the page, Hardy wrote: “As a Londoner and as a human being, it is impossible to be unaffected by the harrowing, unnecessary loss of life, injury, sorrow and the continuing desperate and disturbing situation facing those that were residents of Grenfell Tower, Latimer Road, west London.

“It is impossible not to feel deep, profound shock and just stand by and not make the effort to help those who are innocent victims of a seemingly gross negligence.”

He added: “My heart goes out to those who have lost their lives and their loved ones.

“My thoughts are with the innocent families who are suffering – those who have lost their homes and possessions, their friends, families, relatives, children and their lives in a disaster which could have been avoided.

“People who now have literally nothing within a matter of hours due to what appears to be a man-made mistake and a gross act of negligence which demands a full public inquiry.

“Those found guilty to be held responsible and to account for gross and criminal negligence.

“In the meantime, there are families and children in crisis that desperately need our help and support tonight, both now and ongoing. Please will you help them in any way you can.”
