On the first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Cressida Dick, said:

"The terrible tragedy of Grenfell Tower remains very real, raw and painful for many people, every day. My thoughts, and those of all us in Met, are with all those who died, the loved ones left behind, and all those who survived the fire that night.

"The continued resilience and sense of spirit shown by the community at the heart of this tragedy is inspiring. Many of us will take time today - one year on - to think back and remember.

"Met officers and staff continue to work very hard to progress our ongoing investigation, to assist the Public Inquiry and provide support to families."
