Tears for London fire victims

Four more people whose bodies have been recovered were identified on Monday: 24-year-old Ya-Haddy Sisi Saye (also known as Khadija Saye), 65-year-old Anthony Disson, 39-year-old Abufars Ibrahim, and 52-year-old Khadija Khalloufi.

In a statement, the family of Mr Disson said: “Our family are devastated at receiving the news that Tony sadly did not survive the fire at Grenfell Tower”.

He said only five people had been formally identified so far by police.

Of those who were injured, 17 people remain in hospital, with nine in critical care, according to NHS England.

“We have had so much support for the local community and we can not thank everyone enough”.

The government has pledged to give £5,500 to all of those who lost their homes.

Meanwhile, other people have been showing their support for the fire crews through The Fire Fighters Charity.

In leaked letters seen by BBC One’s Panorama, experts warn that those living in tower blocks like Grenfell Tower were “at risk”.

May’s spokeswoman said later on Monday that staff from five government departments are now working on the ground, including officials from the Foreign Office.

The reported death toll in massive fire that gutted the 24-storey apartment in west London has risen to 30 which likely to go beyond 100 as the firemen continue the rescue operation with caution fearing the collapse of the building.

Commander Stuart Cundy, of the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), said another 26 people are now presumed to have died in the fire, raising the total number to 79.

“It is incredibly hard to describe the devastation in some parts of the building”, he continued, his voice breaking.

At an improvised memorial wall covered in messages of grief and solidarity close to Grenfell Tower, firefighters and members of the local community stood together, some crying, as they observed the minute’s silence. “She understood that immediate action needed to be taken to speed things up, and that’s what she’s done”, the spokeswoman said.

The investigation will include areas such as the construction, renovation and maintenance of the building and fire safety procedures, he said.

“Where offences have been committed, I will do everything in my gift to make sure they are brought to justice”.
