The Queen met firefighters who tackled the Grenfell Tower blaze in west London
Detectives investigating the fire at Grenfell Tower can confirm that four more victims have now been formally identified in agreement with the Coroner, Dr Fiona Wilcox. Adele had a cup of tea with the firefighters Monday and thanked them for their efforts in battling the fire at the 24-story Grenfell Tower.
One firefighter, in his black protective suit with FIRE emblazoned in yellow on the back, embraced a distraught woman who had photos of a missing person printed on her top. As to the cause of the fire, police sources indicated that they had been able to spot the exact place where it all started and that it was unlikely that the blaze had been set deliberately.
The rest are missing presumed dead and Mr Cundy said "the bad reality is that we may not be able to identify all those that died" inside what is now a blackened and charred shell.
"It is incredibly hard to describe the devastation in some parts of the building", he continued, his voice breaking. London Mayor Sadiq Khan wrote a letter to Prime Minister May urging her to do more.
Lily Allen attended a protest which she live-streamed, while Simon Cowell will release a charity single to raise money for the victims.
With many celebrating the annual tradition across Ireland and the United Kingdom, those who survived the blaze that ripped through the 27 storey building on Tuesday night were left in tears as the search for the missing residents continues.
Mrs May said after the meeting that the response in the hours immediately following the tragedy was "not good enough". "She understood that immediate action needed to be taken to speed things up, and that's what she's done", the spokeswoman said.

At Downing Street on Saturday afternoon, the Prime Minister met 16 people, including victims, residents, community leaders and volunteers, following the devastating blaze at the west London tower block.
But on the streets, there is anger over whether the block's renovation project purposefully did not include safety devices, such as sprinklers, or used banned flammable materials to clad the building and make it more attractive for neighbours in the upmarket Kensington and Chelsea region. The fire has led to national soul-searching about inequalities and neglect of the poor.
Mr Cundy would not be drawn on the specifics of the criminal investigation, including whether anyone had been arrested or raids carried out.
Five people who had been reported missing after the disaster have been found safe and well, he added.
The London Metropolitan Police service said that there were likely no more survivors, which could further increase the death toll and bring it into triple digits.
"That's why I'm positive about it, because I think in the past local residents here have not always been listened to".
