The Bishop of Kensington with the Mayor of London at the site of the Grenfell Tower fireDiocese of London
A minute’s silence was held across the UK this morning for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire disaster as the latest update put the number of dead or missing presumed dead at 79.
The number formally identified is just five, the devastation in the tower block is so immense. Whole families are known to have died.
Firefighters in uniform took time to break from their duties to visit the site and meet, hug and comfort survivors and friends and families of victims at the site itself. Many were close to tears, and some of the families wore t-shirts bearing images of the missing.
That number is expected to increase further and there are fears the total number of dead could reach more than 100.
