Grenfell: 30 confirmed dead as hope for surviours dwindle

CONFIRMATION: Stuart Cundy

MET POLICE Commander Stuart Cundy said “we know that at least 30 people who have died”.

One of those included someone who was taken to hospital, he said.

Cundy continued, stating that: "the bodies have been taken to a morgue, but more bodies remain in the building. We always knew that the death toll would be increase".

Further developments suggest the fire wasn't started deliberately according to Cundy. He added: "The investigation into the cause of the fire will take weeks. Sadly we do not expect there to be any survivors”.

When asked Cundy why it is taking so long to identify the victims, he said: “I do believe the number will increase, the building is in a hazardous condition.

He said he would only give figures the police are certain about, as he was heckled by residents.

He continued, noting that he can’t say how many people are missing, but everyone being treated in hospitals has been identified.
