At least 58 people are now missing and presumed dead in the Grenfell Tower disaster, police have said.

This latest figure included the 30 already confirmed to have died in the devastating fire in a west London tower block on Wednesday.

Commander Stuart Cundy said that number “may increase” and that the “significant” recovery operation is likely to take weeks.

“As soon as we can, we will locate and recover loved ones,” he added.

Commander Cundy appealed for anyone who managed to escape from the building, to let authorities know they were safe.

The BBC understands there could be around 70 people missing.

The search was paused on Friday due to safety concerns, but has now resumed, Commander Cundy said.

The latest update comes following the Queen’s birthday message in which she reflected on the “sombre national mood” following tragedies in London and Manchester in recent weeks. (BBC)
