Three more Grenfell Tower victims named, as death toll rises to 79

Britain's government said it would act on recommendations from a probe into the London tower block fire, responding to a disaster critics said showed something had gone "badly wrong" in the country.

Met Police Commander Stuart Cundy confirmed the figure in a statement on Monday, adding it may still change.

"At No 10 yesterday, the Prime Minister assured the group that from now on residents would be consulted on a coordinated relief effort".

The down-payment is part of a £5m support fund established by the Government in the wake of Wednesday's fire.

A key issue he did not mention was the EU's bill for Britain to leave, which Brussels estimates at a colossal 100 billion euros. This letter also presses for an early deal giving guarantees on the rights of European Union citizens working in the UK.

Footage from inside the gutted building has been released, showing the extent of the damage. This will never be let go.

Those who lost their home will also be given £500 in cash, the Government announced on Sunday.

There were angry scenes at the offices of the Kensington and Chelsea council, which was responsible for managing the 1970s social housing block in a working-class enclave of one of Britain's richest areas.

Council leader Nicholas Paget-Brown said he understood residents' anger and that the authority itself wanted to know why the fire had started and spread so quickly - but it was too big for one council to handle alone.

The tower, built by local authority, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) in 1974, is run by the Kensington and Chelsea Tenants' Management Organization (KCTMO) on behalf of RBKC. "It is", he said.
