'Officers say they have recovered and identified the final two bodies from the tower and do not expect to find any more.
The Grenfell Tower fire took the lives of 71 people in all, police have said, after recovering what they believe to be the last of the bodies.
Officers investigating the disaster said on Thursday they had recovered and identified the final two bodies from the tower and did not expect to find any more. Those who died include a family of six and at least three families of five, and range in ages from a stillborn baby boy to an 84-year-old woman.
“The human cost and terrible reality of what took place at Grenfell Tower affects so many people. Our search operation and ongoing investigation is about those people,” said Met police commander Stuart Cundy, who is overseeing the investigation.
“I cannot imagine the agony and uncertainty that some families and loved ones have been through whilst we have carried out our meticulous search, recovery and identification process.”'
