The death toll arising from the Grenfell Tower fire in London keeps increasing.
Authorities now say that the number of fatalities stands at 79, but with parts of the building still to be searched, that figure is likely to rise further.
Images have been released showing the devastation caused by the blaze. The building caught fire almost in its entirety, with many blaming the material used in external cladding as a crucial factor.
A minute’s silence was observed in the UK at 11 o’clock this morning as a mark of respect for the victims.
