‘At least 30’ people now confirmed dead in Grenfell fire

At least 30 people died in the Grenfell Tower fire, police have said, as they warned the number is expected to continue to rise.

Speaking at a press conference, Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said the figure included one victim who had died in hospital.

There was nothing to suggest the fire – which engulfed the tower block in west London – had been started deliberately, he added.

The “absolute priority” now was to as quickly, and with as much dignity, as possible remove the bodies of those still inside the wreckage of the building, he said.

Sadly, we do not expect there to be any survivors.

– Commander Stuart Cundy, Metropolitan Police
