He said: "I'm afraid to say there are now 79 people that we believe are either dead or missing and I sadly have to presume they're dead". Because of the intensity of the blaze some may never be identified.

Another wrote, "Adele is at now at Grenfell Tower asking if anyone needs help that was affected by the fire", while a third added, "The fact that Adele has gone to Grenfell tower and not said a word about it just proves how amazingly honest she is".

Mr Cundy also promised an "exhaustive" criminal investigation into the fire that would also look at a major refurbishment of the building completed past year. The investigation will include areas such as the construction, renovation and maintenance of the building and fire safety procedures, he said.

But he added that five people who were originally reported missing have been found.

The death toll was first given as 12, before being revised up to 17, then 30, then 58.

May said she expected to announce the name of the judge for a public inquiry within a few days.
