London: London police said 79 people were dead or missing presumed dead after a devastating tower block blaze last week.

London police commander Stuart Cundy said the toll from the Grenfell Tower blaze could still change but probably not as much as it had in recent days.

He also said that five people who were reported missing had now been found safe and well.

Fire engulfed the social housing block in the early hours of Wednesday, turning it into a flaming torch in minutes.

The cause of the blaze, the worst in the British capital in a generation, was being investigated.

The tower, built in 1974 in North Kensington, an area of west London, contained 120 flats and was thought to have been home to about 600 people.
