It’s now been over 24 hours since a horrendous fire ripped through a 24-story highrise tower block in West London.

Throughout Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, firefighters from across London were working to rescue people from the building and combat the spreading flames.

On Wednesday afternoon, a London firefighter called Mick posted the following tweet.

At the time of writing the tweet has been shared almost 15,000 times, and that number is quickly rising.

It’s also had well over 1,000 replies — mostly from people who want to thank him for his bravery.

Mick has only posted one other tweet since then — a fairly curt response to a picture request form The Sun.

That reply has now been shared approaching 17,000 times.
