However, Mr Cundy went on to describe the search operation as "hugely complex" and said: "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, we may not be able to identify everybody that died".

Adele visited firefighters at Chelsea Firestation on Monday (19Jun17) to share a "cup of tea and a cuddle" with them following the devastating blaze at London's Grenfell Tower last week.

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said the death toll may still change from the current 79 but not as significantly as it has in recent days.

Some firefighters returned to the scene of the blaze in North Kensington for the event and were seen sobbing alongside the residents.

Fifth Grenfell Tower victim named, as death toll rises to 79
The number of victims is reportedly expected to rise, as countless others were hospitalized after the fire. May has come under personal attack for failing to meet residents during her first visit to the site.

Mr Cundy's announcement coincided with the police releasing images showing the charred wreckage inside the tower, which show flats reduced to ash and rubble.

A minute's silence was held across the country for the victims yesterday.

He added: "In this context I thought it would be helpful to explain what we do in Swan's current approach to fire safety and highlight that we will keep this under review as we learn more about this incident". It is incredibly hard to describe the devastation in some parts of that building.

"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".

According to broadcaster NOS , the Colombian army has sent a unit which specialises in kidnapping to the region. The area of Norte de Santander also has several crime gangs trafficking drugs.

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

"It would be wrong to speculate about the cause of the fire until a full investigation has been carried out".

"We are therefore asking local authorities and other registered providers of social housing to identify whether any panels used in new-build or refurbishment are a particular type of cladding made of aluminium composite material (ACM)".

In addition to offering emotional support, William, Duchess Kate and Prince Harry have also donated to a fund assisting families left homeless in the wake of the tragedy.

"We are so humbled by everyone's support", the London Fire Brigade tweeted.
