79 people feared dead in London high-rise fire

Members of the Fire Brigade who attended the scene of Grenfell Fire

London police say that the number of dead or missing in the high-rise apartment building fire is now 79.

Fire swept through the 24-storey block in North Kensington, west London, shortly before 01:00 BST on 13 June.

Mr Cundy said the death toll - which increased from 58 - could still change as investigations continue, but not as significantly as it has in recent days.

"The very bad 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.

Five bodies have been identified, while many others are missing and presumed dead.

Footage from inside the gutted building has been released, showing the extent of the damage caused by the blaze.

He said it had been "incredibly emotional working in there".

Cal-Maine Foods Inc (CALM) EPS Estimated At $0.00
Amici Cap Limited Liability Co has 237,885 shares. $98,212 worth of stock was sold by Holladay Robert L Jr on Tuesday, January 17. Finally, Westpac Banking Corp bought a new position in shares of Cal-Maine Foods during the first quarter worth about $230,000.

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.

"I believe there may be people who were in Grenfell Tower that people may not know are missing and may not have realised they were in there on the night", he said.

Residents will be given £500 in cash followed by a bank payment for the rest from Monday, with the money coming from the £5 million fund announced by Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday. Cundy added that authorities are investigating whether any crimes had been committed in the fire.

"What is important for me is to find answers for those families who have been directly affected".

However, the HKIS has recommended a thorough inspection of the cladding material in terms of fire risks and whether there is the presence of the inflammable polyethylene, which is being blamed for the Grenfell Tower fire.

"But we will do it with our utmost professionalism and we will do everything we can as quickly as we can to locate everybody who is in there".
