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".
