Trade Minister Greg Hands said the government is carrying out an "urgent inspection" of the roughly 2,500 similar tower blocks across Britain to assess their safety, while an opposition lawmaker urged the government to quickly secure documents in the Grenfell renovation for the criminal probe.

Cundy says the new number may change as investigation continues.

The latest figures from NHS England show that 17 patients are still being treated in four London hospitals.

London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton told BBC Radio 4's Today programme she could understand the "absolute frustration and misery" of people concerned about loved ones who had not yet been identified, but that it was critical to go through the process properly.

Mr Green said the probe will look at whether sprinklers should be retrofitted to tower blocks and the Government will "follow the recommendations of the public inquiry".

This will ensure those involved in the response to the tragedy are able "to receive targeted support should they need it", Downing Street said. "We do not want another fatality arising out of this tragedy". More than 3 million pounds ($3.8 million) have been raised for the victims.
