Grenfell Tower Fire Victim Count Increases, Police Investigate Possible Crimes

When was Grenfell Tower built what is the address and how many floors are there

Police say 79 people are now dead or missing after the fire at Grenfell Tower in west London.

He said there was a feeling among people they have been treated badly and not understood by the council because some of them are "poor, some may come from deprived backgrounds, some may be asylum seekers and refugees". Authorities had warned earlier that some of the victims may never be identified because of the state of their remains. Cundy said emergency workers have now reached the top of the building.

Cundy says the new number may change as investigation continues. "We will go where the evidence may take us". Cundy has promised to share with relevant authorities any issues that need to be addressed immediately to protect public safety.

From fire safety to tower upkeep, petitions were signed in efforts to receive better treatment from the landlords were to the wayside.

He said: "We must also prepare people for the awful reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire".

"Khan went on to call Wednesday's massive Grenfell Tower fire "a preventable accident that didn't need to happen" - and said the tragedy was "a outcome of the mistakes and neglect from politicians from the council and from the government".

A firefighter stands outside of the Grenfell Tower after fire engulfed the 24-storey building, in London.

The cause of Wednesday's blaze is still under investigation, but anger has mounted in the community amid reports that exterior paneling used in an extensive renovation completed past year may have been banned by United Kingdom rules. The woman, 78-year-old Fatima Jafari, has not seen her husband, Ali Yawra, since Wednesday morning's tragedy.

"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".

On Monday, Theresa May's spokeswoman said the Prime Minister knows the public want quick answers to the disaster.

The GRT includes London-wide local and regional government, central government, British Red Cross, Metropolitan Police and London Fire Brigade.

The arresting photos show apartment units with nearly nothing recognizable left inside, beyond kitchen sinks, laundry equipment and what appears to be a burned out mattress.

With blackened rubble strewn across the floor and exposed pipes, one room is unrecognisable as a home until a bath and sink come into view - the dividing wall destroyed completely by the fire.

Burnt objects including baths, ovens, washing machines, and what looks to be an exercise bike, can be made out amongst the fragments.
