Local churches, community centres and charities have sprung into action to offer emergency rest centres and support

St Clement's Church in Sidar Road and Rugby Portobello Trust in Walmer Road say they have enough donations currently and are asking people to take clean and useable clothing, water, dry and canned food to St Francis Catholic Church in Pottery Lane, W11 4NQ.
