    Yep, they are reporting that the tower fell in to the water. The missing and dead are believed to have been in the lift inside the tower. Not nice.
  2. Thanks. I've been looking at the photos, video and camera angles trying to make sense of it in the dark. The tilt of the stair tower suggests that the frontage fell one way while the tower might have collapsed over the other wing before going in the water. That would explain why the static camera is pointing west instead of southwest.

    There's no possibility that the lift is still over land?
  3. A better idea of the scale of destruction:

    What compounds confusion about it all is that so many media outlets, Guardian included, are showing photos of the fire escape and describing it as the tower (which was at the opposite end of the building that no longer seems to be there).
