Death Toll In London Tower Block Fire Rises To 17 -Police

West London Fire

The death toll in the blaze that engulfed a residential tower in west London has rised to 17 and is expected to rise further, Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said.

Thirty-seven people remain in hospital, including 17 in critical condition, Cundy said.

London Fire Brigade Commissioner Dany Cotton said it “could take weeks” for firefighters to complete a search of the gutted, 24-storey Grenfell Tower.

“I want to be realistic, this could be a long process,” Cotton said, speaking alongside Cundy.
