79 presumed dead in London fire

79 presumed dead in London fire

"I'm afraid to say there are now 79 people that we believe are either dead" or presumed dead in London's Grenfell Tower fire, Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said Monday morning, in an update on the huge fire that overtook a 24-story building last week.

Late on Sunday, the Metropolitan Police released three photos from inside Grenfell Tower, which showed in close detail how the fire charred the building that once housed up to 600 people in 120 apartments.

Britain held a moment of silence for the victims on Monday, with emergency service workers bowing their heads in respect.

The attacks and the fire have come at a particularly hard time for Prime Minister Theresa May, who was weakened by the loss of her parliamentary majority in a June 8 election and faces arduous talks on Britain's exit from the European Union.

The job's contractor has said the work met all fire standards.

Rescue efforts have been slow as the building was devastated by flames and many areas were not able to be accessed safely.

"Angry not simply at the poor response in the days afterwards from the council and the government, but the years of neglect from the council and from successive governments", he added. "She understood that immediate action needed to be taken to speed things up, and that's what she's done", the spokeswoman said.

May did not support a proposal put forward by Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour Party, to seize unoccupied properties to rehouse survivors of the fire, the spokeswoman said.

"Whilst it will look at the how, perhaps more importantly, it will also look at why this happened", Cundy said.

Hammond said that will be a focus of the inquiry and investigation.

Commander Cundy said in a statement: "It is really important that we are clear about the scale of the challenge facing us as our teams search Grenfell Tower to recover those people still inside and return them to their loved ones".

Cundy says the new number may change as investigation continues. "But I don't think anything prepared me for what I was going to see when I was in there", he said.
