Cundy said 16 bodies had so far been recovered from the tower and taken to a mortuary. "And therefore, sadly, I have to assume that they are dead", he said. He promised an exhaustive investigation into the fire which would include scrutiny of the renovation works on the block which some experts believe may have left the building more vulnerable to the catastrophic blaze.
"There is a feeling from the community of they've been treated badly because some of them are poor, some of them may come from deprived backgrounds, some of them may be asylum seekers and refugees", Khan said.
The death toll in the fire that ravaged a London tower block last week has risen to 79, police said on Monday, and the government said it was working to get a public inquiry into the disaster up and running promptly. He asked anyone who was in the tower and survived to contact police immediately.
He says it may be necessary for numerous outmoded tower blocks built in the 1970s to be demolished because of safety concerns. Cundy said emergency workers have now reached the top of the building.
British Prime Minister Theresa May, facing criticism for the government's handling of the disaster, met Saturday with 15 fire survivors invited to her official residence at 10 Downing Street. "Some survivors have also complained the government has been painfully slow to find them places to sleep".
Mrs May said: "As we continue to respond to the needs of the community, our focus is on ensuring that all of those affected by this unimaginable tragedy get the right support as quickly as possible".

The identification of the victims is proving very hard - which experts attribute to the extreme heat of the fire. They say support and information have been scarce.
Cundy said authorities plan to release video and photographs from inside the badly-charred building.
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth II struck a mournful tone in an address to mark her official birthday Saturday, remarking not only on the blaze at the high-rise building but also on the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London. Earlier in the day, the 91-year-old monarch described the country's mood as "somber" but insisted that Britain remained resolute during a hard time.
"Newspapers are calling May's decision not to meet survivors the day after the blaze her "Hurricane Katrina" moment", NPR's Frank Langfitt notes.
Corbyn told ITV's "Peston on Sunday" that the local council, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, was failing to provide effective help for people made homeless by the fire - despite being the wealthiest local authority in the country.
