Grenfell Tower fire dead rises to 79 but police warn that may change



The number of people killed in the Grenfell Tower fire has risen to 79 - but that figure could still change, police say.
 
Fighting back tears as he spoke, Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said five people had been formally identified - but warned that some victims may never be identified.


"The awful reality is, as I've said before, is that due to the intensity of the fire and the devastation within Grenfell Tower that we may not be able to identify everybody that died," he said.


"We have been from the top to the bottom of Grenfell Tower.


"The search operation will be painstaking and having been in there myself it's really hard to describe the devastation that the fire has caused."
