79 individuals are dead or missing and assumed dead after an devastating burst in a council-owned London tower square a week ago, police said on Monday, updating a prior toll of 58 assumed dead.

“As of early today, I’m hesitant to state there are currently 79 individuals that we believe are either dead or missing and I unfortunately need to assume are dead,” police officer Stuart Cundy told media.
