- Police confirm 79 people have died - they say death toll will probably not rise significantly from that figure

Firefighters searching through the wreckage of Grenfell Tower were supported by local residents during an emotional minute's silence to remember the victims of the horrific blaze.
The London crews who fought to tackle the fire last week, and have since been carrying out the dreadful task of piecing through the ravaged tower block, stood in silence in the shadow of the building at 11am this morning.
Some were moved to tears and others embraced after the official death toll of the disaster rose to 79, with five victims having now been formally identified.
Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said the death toll may still change, but not as significantly as it has in recent days.
The silence was observed around the country, outside fire stations, at government building and in town squares.
