Moment of silence for London fire victims

Police Commander Stuart Cundy gave the new figure during a statement outside Scotland Yard on Monday.

Police say 79 people are now dead or missing after the fire at Grenfell Tower in west London.

Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego, reporting from west London, said there has been a lot of distress in the area at the slow release of information and the perceived lacklustre response by the authorities.

NHS England said 17 people are still being treated in London hospitals, of whom nine remain in critical care.

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

British officials say they are helping the Syrian family of the first officially confirmed victim of the London tower blaze to come to Britain.

Mansur said people were not satisfied with the answers they were being given.


Late Sunday, the Metropolitan Police released three photos from inside Grenfell Tower, which showed in close detail how the fire charred the building that once housed up to 600 people in 120 apartments. "I said 'why you didn't come - they brought us outside, I thought you are with us.' He said 'no one brought me outside.' He said, 'why you left me?'"

Of his experience at the church, he said: "I've spent time with the local community, not just the Christian congregation, but members of all faiths here at the church, grieving, sharing their stories".

"Those who mock health and safety, regulations and red tape need to take a hard look at the consequences of cutting these and ask themselves whether Grenfell Tower is a price worth paying".

"Whilst I've said I think there may be changes, I don't think those changes will be as significant as the changes we've seen over the last few days", he said. Composing himself, he said "It's fair to say it is incredibly emotional working in there".

May announced on Friday that her government has set up a £5 million ($8.4 million Cdn) "discretionary fund" to help pay for food, clothing, personal supplies and funerals.

Theresa May had been criticised for keeping away from locals during an initial visit to Grenfell Tower.

Speaking outside Scotland Yard, Mr Cundy added: "I have investigated major crime for most of my service and I have seen some bad things".
