Adele has visited firefighters following the Grenfell Tower blaze in London last week and brought along cakes to thank them for their hard work.

The 29-year-old singer paid an unannounced visit to a fire station in Chelsea on Monday, spending time with some of those who fought the deadly blaze.

The London Fire Brigade Twitter account shared a number of photos of Adele with members of their team with the caption, "Adele enjoyed a cup of tea with Chelsea firefighters yesterday and thanked them for their work. We are so humbled by everyone's support."

One of the fire fighters posted the photographs of the singer on Facebook, posing and smiling with the crew.

"Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Firestation for a cup of tea and a cuddle x", he wrote.

Station manager Ben King said the singer arrived, unannounced, with cake for the firefighters. He also said that she joined in a minute's silence.

"She just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she has some cakes for us," he said.

"So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said: 'Hi, I'm Adele'. Everyone was so shocked".

The visit came after Adele joined a vigil held at the site of the tragedy last week, offering comfort and support to those affected by the fire.

"She was so nice. She was going around talking to people," and eyewitness revealed.

"She tried to keep it on the low but I shouted 'Adele!' and she said 'no, it's not me'. It was about 1am, she came with her husband. She didn't have any security with her, it was a bit surprising. She wasn't hiding her face."

Pictures of the visit by the Hello singer, who was born in Tottenham, north London, were shared on social media and showed her looking emotional as she offered support.
