79 now feared dead or missing in London blaze, police say

"Sadly at this time, there are 58 people who we have been told were in Grenfell Tower on the night that are missing and therefore sadly I have to assume that they are dead", said Commander Stuart Cundy of the Metropolitan Police.

The tower underwent refurbishment by construction firm, Rydon, in 2016, and it has since emerged that a cheaper, more flammable version of the exterior cladding was used in the work.

At least 58 were killed when a fire tore the building last week.

At least 79 people have been presumed dead in the massive fire that engulfed a 24-storey tower here, the Scotland Yard said today, warning that the toll could climb further in one of the worst fire tragedies in the UK.

Authorities released images of the aftermath of the horrific Grenfell Tower blaze showing the charred remains of the gutted apartment building as the death toll in the London fire nears 80.

"The prime minister needs to act immediately to ensure that all evidence is protected so that everyone culpable for what happened at Grenfell Tower is held to account and feels the full force of the law", Lammy said. But I don't think anything prepared me for what I was going to see when I was in there. Cundy said emergency workers have now reached the top of the tower.

"But being with colleagues from the London fire brigade when I was in there, colleagues from the London ambulance service and other police officers, I think it's fair to say it is incredibly emotional working in there".

Lakers reportedly won't give up young assets for Paul George
He has played for the Pacers since being selected by IN with the 10th pick of the 2010 draft. "I'm here. They have been linked to George in rumors before and could decide to look into the possibility again.

West London film producer Nisha Parti, who has been helping victims, said the cash is being given to those checking into hotels in the wake of Wednesday's horrific blaze.

British officials have announced a nationwide minute of silence to honor the victims on Monday morning.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, facing criticism for the government's handling of the disaster, met Saturday with a small group of fire survivors invited to her official residence at 10 Downing Street.

"Equally, there may be people who thankfully may have managed to escape the fire and for whatever reason have not let their family or friends or police know", he said.

May also said that a public inquiry that is looking into the Grenfell Fire will report directly to her and that she has asked for daily updates from the neighbourhood to be sent to her.

"The bad reality of the fire that night means that we are supporting some people who may have lost a number of members of their family on that night", Cundy said. This relies on dental records, fingerprints and DNA when possible and also features like tattoos or scars.

Sixteen bodies have been taken to a mortuary for examination.
