Grenfell Tower: Adele meets firefighters for 'tea and a cuddle'

Cundy said that five people reported as missing in the fire had now been found and were safe and well.

Asked whether Mrs May had considered resigning over criticism of her performance, a spokeswoman said: "These are incredibly challenging times, with a couple of bad incidents in a week and she is leading the country through this hard time".

Following criticisms of the Kensington and Chelsea Council's handling of the disaster, Paget-Brown said "lessons must be learned".

He said: "I'm afraid to say there are now 79 people that we believe are either dead or missing and I sadly have to presume they're dead".

Mr Cundy also promised an "exhaustive" criminal investigation into the fire that would also look at a major refurbishment of the building completed past year. Authorities may never be able to identify some of the victims, he said.

Scotland Yard has announced the death toll has risen to 79.

Police had earlier put the toll at 58 presumed dead.
