Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered a full public inquiry into the fire that engulfed a west London block of flats, killing at least 17 people.

That figure is expected to rise, as fire chiefs do not expect to find any more survivors in the burnt-out Grenfell Tower in North Kensington.

PM May said people "deserve answers" as to why the fire spread so rapidly.

The first victim has been named by the Syria Solidarity Campaign as Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali.

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said Six victims of the blaze have been provisionally identified.

When Asked about the number of dead, Commander Cundy said: "I hope it is not triple figures, but I can't be drawn on the numbers."
