Singer Duffy's £12m Kensington penthouse destroyed in fire


The pop star Duffy fled a fire that destroyed a luxury penthouse flat in London last night.

The Evening Standard reported that more than 60 firefighters tackled the fire in St Mary Abbot's Terrace for more than six hours at the rented £12m 6,000 sq ft loft apartment, with its own pool and cinema.

The singer was seen near High Street Kensington by Rassa Borghei, 58. who lives on the fifth floor. He said:

“I went to the kitchen window and I saw a lot of smoke. I told my sister and my son, let’s leave.

“I saw Duffy running outside. She was running about all over the place. When the police arrived they calmed her.”
