An appeal on JustGiving launched by Kensington Aldridge Academy teacher Hayley Yearwood has generated £1,206,880.

The Year 8 director of learning said: "As I watched the news at 5 o'clock in the morning, I just wanted to make sure residents affected were well cared for after the tragedy.

"Our school is in the heart of a fantastic community. The response so far has been overwhelming as money continues pouring in."

Another, set up by Karolina Hanusova has raised £388,242, while an Evening Standard appeal has reached nearly £1.5 million by Saturday morning.
