Grenfell Tower fire: Seventy-nine people feared dead

19 Июня 2017

COPS have revealed 79 people are now feared dead after a blaze ripped through Grenfell Tower last week. Some bodies might never be able to be identified, Cundy said.

Of the 79, only five have been formally identified, London's Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy told reporters.

Mr Cundy said some families have lost more than one family member in the disaster.

Panoramic footage shows a flat littered with piles of debris, coated in black and grey ash - it is one of the few rooms safe enough for specialist crews to access following the blaze, which took hold in the early hours of Wednesday and has claimed at least 58 lives.

He also said that five people who were reported missing had now been found safe and well. "This is an incredibly distressing time for all of them", he said.

He said his priority was to identify the people who died in the building and to remove them as quickly as possible.

The company said the construction methods used in relation to the cladding on Wing On Centre were different from those reportedly used for Grenfell Tower, and Wing On Centre is likely to have a much lower fire risk as a result. "On Saturday, I went in myself and went to the top floor".

Commander Cundy added authorities were investigating whether any crimes had been committed as part of the incident.

"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".
