Grenfell Tower fire victims inLondon

Rescuers do not expect to find anyone else alive in the west London block of flats which was engulfed by a massive fire, the fire service says.

London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton said there were still “unknown numbers” of people in the smouldering ruins of Grenfell Tower, in north Kensington.

People have been desperately seeking news of missing family and friends, after 12 people were confirmed dead.

Police have warned the number of deaths is expected to rise.

Thirty-four people remain in hospital – 18 of whom are in a critical condition.

The Queen said her “thoughts and prayers” were with families who had lost loved ones and the many still critically ill in hospital.

Prime Minister Theresa May, who is visiting the scene, has promised a full investigation, as questions are asked about the speed at which the fire spread.
