Mr Cundy said police had received 70 pictures and videos of the fire from the public and urged them to send more as officers investigate the blaze.

The flammable cladding of the tower has been blamed for the rapid spreading of the fire, which has killed 79 people.

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service has also issued fire safety advice and reassurance to people who are concerned about the safety of high-rise buildings following this morning's fire at Grenfell Tower in London.

In a statement entitled "firefighters demand no cover-up", Mr Wrack said: 'The victims of this awful disaster and the firefighters who fought the fire have questions that need answering.

"Only when we have investigated fully and properly will I be able to say what happened and why - to speculate now would be simply wrong".

"We are so humbled by everyone's support", the brigade tweeted. The woman, 78-year-old Fatima Jafari, has not seen her husband, Ali Yawra, since Wednesday morning's tragedy.

May's spokeswoman said later on Monday that staff from five government departments are now working on the ground, including officials from the Foreign Office.

Hassanen's mother, Sawsan Gazzar, reportedly told the Washington Post that Nabra was beaten with a metal bat. At around 3pm, the remains of a female believed to be the teen victim were found in a pond, said the police.

"I have been in contact with the leader of Kensington and Chelsea to offer any practical support we can. She was going around talking to people", said witness Tom Maughan.

Among the prominent protesters against the poor living conditions were Nadia Choucair, a Lebanese national, and Mariem Elgwahry, who are both feared to have died in the fire.

Cundy said a criminal investigation into the tower blaze would be exhaustive and that 250 investigators were looking at all criminal offences that may have been committed.

"It will be far reaching - in a number of areas including how the building was managed and maintained, fire safety measures and the refurbishment that was reported to have finished in 2014".

Scotland Yard have also announced that residents Ya-Haddy Sisi Saye, also known as Khadija Saye, 24, Abufars Ibrahim, 39, and Anthony Disson, 65, are among the victims.

"Whilst I've said I think there may be changes, I don't think those changes will be as significant as the changes we've seen over the last few days", he said.
