A total of 58 people are dead or missing, presumed dead, following the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower in west London, police have said.
Commander Stuart Cundy said that number “may increase”. The BBC understands it could be about 70 people in total.
The recovery operation at the burnt-out block of flats has resumed and could take weeks, he said.
Meanwhile, PM Theresa May admitted support for families in the “initial hours” was “not good enough”.
The statement came after Mrs May met volunteers and some of the people made homeless by the fire.
As they left Number 10, one representative spoke to reporters briefly, saying they would not make a full statement yet.
“We will be making this in the community, with the community,” he said.
“We have had two-and-a-half hours with the prime minister in the last 48 hours and spoke about demands and what we expect.”
Council leader Nicholas Paget-Brown said “lessons must be learned”, adding that he was “heartbroken by the tragic fire and the appalling loss of life”
Earlier, residents caught up in the fire condemned the relief effort as “absolute chaos”.
In her statement, Mrs May said: “Frankly, the support on the ground for families who needed help or basic information in the initial hours after this appalling disaster was not good enough.”
She said phone lines would be better staffed and more staff would be deployed in the area.
They would wear high-visibility clothing so they could easily be found, dispense advice and ensure the right support is provided, she added.
Mrs May said she expected to announce the name of the judge for a public inquiry within the next few days. The inquiry will report back to the prime minister.
