Tower Hamlets spokesperson said:
“We are incredibly shocked by the crane collapse this evening in Bow and our thoughts are with the families of those affected.
“Council officers are on the scene to both support the London Fire Brigade and residents who have been affected by the incident. We have set up a rest centre to help those who are displaced. All residents in the affected buildings are being offered food and support at the rest centre and we are providing accommodation for those that need it.
“Access to the local area will be restricted for some time.”
