Death toll in London tower fire rises – UK Police


Police said on Monday that the death toll in the fire that ravaged a London tower block on June 14, has risen to 79.

Fire broke out in the 24-storey Grenfell Tower, a social housing block
in west London, in the early hours of June 14 and spread with terrifying
speed, tearing through the building with residents trapped inside.

Emergency services have been widely praised for their handling of the
disaster, the government has been criticized for a slow and inadequate
response, with Prime Minister Theresa May facing public anger for failing
to meet residents during her first visit to the site.

“Sadly today, as of 8 o’clock this morning (3.00 a.m. ET), the number has
increased. I believe there are 79 people that are either dead, or missing,
and sadly I have to presume are dead,” Metropolitan Police Commander
Stuart Cundy told reporters.
