"It is a truly terrible reality that there may be some people that we may not be able to identify due to the intensity of the fire", he said before pausing again to recover himself.

Footage from inside the gutted building has been released, showing the extent of the damage.

"The search operation will be painstaking and having been in there myself it's really hard to describe the devastation that the fire has caused".

Speaking outside Scotland Yard, Mr Cundy added: "I have investigated major crime for most of my service and I have seen some bad things". Whether that's due to social media now bringing us directly into contact with events we'd have once only seen on the evening news, a growing empathy for our fellow humanity or a genuine reflection of increasing risks in modern life doesn't matter, what matters is people died, others were injured and greater numbers left homeless.

"I want to do all I can do to help".

Seventeen people are still being treated in London hospitals, nine of whom remain in critical condition, the UK Press Association reported Monday.

Anger and protests at the government and local authorities' handling of the tragedy have followed, with London Mayor Sadiq Khan calling the fire "a horrific incident".

"This is an incredibly distressing time for families and they have my commitment that we will do this as quickly as we possibly can", he said.

Mr Cundy would not be drawn on the specifics of the criminal investigation, including whether anyone had been arrested or raids carried out.

Downing Street confirmed that several London boroughs had come together in a Gold Command structure to co-ordinate assistance to those affected by the disaster.

Prime Minister Theresa May, criticised for keeping her distance from angry residents during her visit to the charred remains of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower, said on Saturday the response to the disaster had been "not good enough". We have to get justice for them.

There have even been reports about Grenfell residents claiming that this was an attempt to clear out the area to make way for high end and commercial infrastructure especially since the area in question houses some of the most poverty stricken population in Britain. "We ask at this time that our family are left to grieve in private".

Two women who are feared to have died in Grenfell Tower were threatened with legal action for raising fears about safety in the block.
