Messages were left for those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire

Manchester City and England winger Raheem Sterling is to make a substantial donation to those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

The 22-year-old grew up in north west London, starting his career at QPR.

A fire that engulfed the block of flats killed at least 17 people, a figure expected to increase.

Sterling told the BBC: “This is a deep and sad situation, one that’s close to my heart and hard to swallow. I would like to help in the best way I can.”

He added: “It is only a small step, but small steps lead to big changes if we all come together.

“My condolences to the affected families, also the individuals who lost their homes.”
