The number of people injured in the fire has increased to 64, including 20 in a critical condition, according to an update from the London Ambulance Service.
The Met has confirmed that six people were killed – and the number is expected to rise.
Commander Stuart Cundy said: “Our thoughts are with everyone involved in this truly shocking fire at Grenfell Tower.
“I can confirm six fatalities at this time, but this figure is likely to rise during what will be a complex recovery operation over a number of days. Many others are receiving medical care.”
