Met Police: 79 dead in Grenfell Tower fire

The number of people dead or missing and presumed dead in Grenfell Tower fire in north London has now risen to 79, Metropolitan Police said on Monday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and city authorities promised a thorough inquiry of last week’s fire that engulfed the 24-story building. The fire spread quickly probably due to flammable materials used in a renovation project that ended last year.
