Five people have been formally identified, including 23-year-old Mohammad Alhajali and a woman whose family do not want her name to be released.

Ya-Haddy Sisi Saye, also known as Khadija Saye, 24, Abufars Ibrahim, 39, and Anthony Disson, 65, all lived in the 24-storey block, which was destroyed by a huge blaze last Wednesday in west London.

The images were taken by a police recovery team that has been working with members of the London Fire Brigade and the London Ambulance Service to comb through the remains of the charred building.

One went to the-then Communities and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles, who received a letter about fire regulations from the parliamentary group in February 2014.

Mr Cundy said: 'Sadly, at this time there are 58 people who we have been told were in the Grenfell Tower on the night that are missing, and therefore sadly, I have to assume that they are dead'.

At a daily briefing with reporters, May's spokeswoman said the terms of reference of a public inquiry into the tower blaze were being drafted.

Mrs May was not supporting a proposal put forward by opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn to seize unoccupied properties to rehouse survivors of the fire, the spokeswoman said.

"Occupy it, compulsory purchase it, requisition it - there's a lot of things you can do", Corbyn said on Sunday during an interview on ITV.

He added that "we have taken these steps in the interest of Qatar. and in the interest of security and stability in the region". Erdogan signed off deals on the Turkish Parliament's approval late on Thursday night, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Chancellor said a criminal investigation would examine whether building regulations had been breached when the block was overhauled just past year.

'As there are estimated to be another 4,000 older tower blocks in the United Kingdom, without automatic sprinkler protection, can we really afford to wait for another tragedy to occur before we amend this weakness?'

"I'd like to reassure everybody that we will be looking at all criminal offenses that may have been committed by any individual or any organization", he said.

This will ensure those involved in the response to the tragedy are able "to receive targeted support should they need it", Downing Street said.

Hammond said that will be a focus of the inquiry and investigation.

The incident in North Kensington caused the death of 79 people, though this number may still change.

Yesterday Commander Stuart Cundy of the Metropolitan Police said the conditions inside the building are "indescribable" and the operation to recover the bodies of those who tragically died in the blaze will take weeks. "But I don't think anything prepared me for what I was going to see when I was in there", he said.
