If a small electric bike battery can do this, heaven help anybody living near an electric car charger!

An e-bike sparked a fire on the 12th floor of a West London tower block, less than a mile away from Grenfell Tower, where 72 people died following a blaze in 2017.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of a blaze at a high-rise block on Queensdale Crescent in Shepherd’s Bush, Tuesday morning.

A resident of the block of flats said the fire began when his friend was charging an e-bike in his home.

Latest: 60 firefighters have been tackling a fire in a 12th floor flat in W11 close to Grenfell Tower.
