The number of people who are missing and feared dead in the Grenfell tower fire is now at least 58 and the death toll could still rise, authorities said.
London Police Commander Stuart Cundy said the figure of 58 people missing in the blaze includes the 30 that are already confirmed dead.
Commander Cundy said: “Sadly at this time, there are 58 people who we have been told were in Grenfell Tower on the night that are missing and therefore sadly I have to assume that they are dead.
“That number 58 may change. I really hope it won’t, but it may increase.
“Our focus has been on those that we know were in Grenfell Tower. However, there may be other people who were in there on the night that others were not aware were there.
“That is also an absolute priority for the investigation – to establish who they may be,” he added.
Mr Cundy also appealed to anyone who may have escaped from the building, but has not yet come forward, to make themselves known.
