Police name three more victims of fire
Last week, singer Lily Allen was criticised after she said she believed the real death toll was being covered up. Mr Cundy added that authorities are investigating whether any crimes had been committed in the fire.

Fendi, who died on Monday, played a key role along with her four sisters in developing and expanding her parents' small leather workshop, transforming the business into a global luxury fashion brand. "She will accompany us forever".

It was Carla and her sisters - Paola, Anna, Franca and Alda - who in 1965 brought in Karl Lagerfeld, then a young German designer, to create a women's ready-to-wear-line. Although Fendi was founded in 1925, it wasn't until 25 years later she was recruited to take over the PR and marketing team.
