Spreading good cheer... Adele visits the London tower firefighters.

Adele has shown her support for the firefighters who worked the scene of last week's devastating Grenfell Tower blaze in London by popping into the station for "a cup of tea and a cuddle".

Police have confirmed that 79 people are now dead or missing after the fire in north Kensington, meanwhile sorrow has turned to anger amid questions around materials used to clad the buildings, the government's response and the way victims of the fire were treated. 

Adele, however, is bringing some much-needed cheer.

Photos of Adele's visit were posted to Facebook by Rob Petty, who captioned the pic, "Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Firestation for a cup of tea and a cuddle x."

The act of goodwill comes after the One Love Manchester benefit concert organised by Ariana Grande following the terrorism attack at her Manchester concert which killed 22 concert-goers in May.

The concert united people in hope and against fear.

As Hannah Jane Parkinson wrote of the concert, "From the depraved dregs of humanity; the glorious blossoming of hope, a tangible act of togetherness; the salvation of pop."

The same might be said for Adele and her act of kindness.
