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.

"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.
