The 26-year-old posted a video of herself among black sacks of clothes, water, and food at one of the help points in West London.

She also posted an image of the tower and wrote "RIP" on Snapchat.

Adele's the latest celebrity to offer support to those affected by the devastating Glenfell Tower fire in West London; visiting the area to console residents.

In the aftermath of the London Grenfell Tower fire, throngs of well-wishers and victims alike have been holding a vigil near the fire site.

The singer was pictured visibly upset by the situation, as eyewitnesses claim she was "asking if anyone needs help". She took to social media to write: "My prayers are with everybody involved my heart is beating so fast".

The former X Factor judge previously revealed that she used to spend time in the apartment block as a child, writing on Instagram: "This is my neighborhood I can't believe this is happening".

One person who visited the scene of the disaster was Adele and she has been praised by many people on Twitter for not only the humility she showed at the scene but also the fact she didn't seek any publicity whilst she was there.

They wrote: "Adele near the #Grenfell Tower in an Abaya".

'It's very odd not being home, all I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family. I'm literally on the other side of the world and I want them to see our lights and to hear us'.
