79 now believed to have died in London high-rise fire

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 00:16

The latest update includes the 30 already confirmed to have died in the catastrophic fire in a west London tower block in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Opponents of May's government demanded to know whether more could have been done to prevent the disaster and if spending cuts to local authorities had played a part.

"The bad reality is that, due to the intensity of the fire and the devastation within Grenfell Tower, we may not be able to identify everyone who died", he added.

Scotland Yard has said the rescue operation by emergency services on the site will take weeks and the death toll is also expected to rise further, though not all victims may be identified due to the nature of the burns.

Tailored bereavement support for families of the victims, those missing or people affected by the tragedy will also be provided. Sixteen bodies have been taken to the mortuary including one person who died in hospital - the others have been recovered from the building.

Khan described the fire as a "preventable accident that didn't need to happen", adding that the "tragedy we're seeing is a outcome of the mistakes and neglect from politicians from the council and from the government".

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy confirmed that the force now believes at least 79 people are dead or missing, presumed dead.

The statement comes as Transport for London partially closed two Tube lines because of London Fire Brigade (LFB) saying there was a "short-term risk of some debris falling on to the tracks".


"In our meeting at Downing Street, we explained to the prime minister the anger of all residents towards the management of the estate over a long period of time, paving the way to this tragedy", the group said.

Cundy said efforts to trace missing people had led him to believe that the number could be higher.

On Monday, London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton told BBC Radio 4's Today programme she could understand the "absolute frustration and misery" of people concerned about loved ones who had not yet been identified.

London police said Saturday that the death toll from the inferno at the Grenfell Tower in west London had risen to 58.

'As London faith representatives, our united minds, hearts and prayers are with everyone in Grenfell Tower and with the families and friends of all those who are impacted.

Cmdr Cundy added that authorities are investigating whether any crimes had been committed in the fire.

He said it had been "incredibly emotional working in there", adding: "On Saturday I went in myself and went to the top floor". Numerous displaced are living in churches and community centers.
