Grenfell Tower fire: 17 people now confirmed dead

The number of people confirmed dead after the Grenfell Tower fire in west London has risen to 17.
"We do believe that that number will sadly increase," Met Police Commander Stuart Cundy said.

Earlier, London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton said there were still "unknown numbers of people" inside the block.

Many people from the 120 flats remain missing, with relatives and friends desperately appealing for information.

In another update on Thursday morning, NHS England said 37 people were still being treated in hospital, 17 of them in a critical condition.
