All the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy may never be identified, the police have warned.
The comments came after emergency services begin spend a third day searching for bodies in the North Kensington building.
Only 17 people have known to have died but the toll could top 60.
Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said there was “a risk that sadly we may not be able to identify everybody”.
Asked about the number of dead, he said he hoped the death toll would not reach “triple figures”.
He added: “We as the police, we investigate criminal offences – I am not sitting here and saying there are criminal offences that have been committed, that’s why you do an investigation, to establish it.”
