Commander Stuart Cundy said the fire damage witnessed by specialist teams inside Grenfell Tower verged on 'indescribable'.He said: 'It is really important that we are clear about the scale of the challenge facing us as our teams search Grenfell Tower to recover those people still inside and return them to their loved ones.'Whilst our teams have been from the bottom to the top of the tower, we must now carry out a full forensic and systematic search.'The conditions due to the fire damage verge on indescribable, which is why this will be such a lengthy operation taking weeks to complete.'We must also prepare people for the terrible reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire.' 'Work has been ongoing throughout the night and continues today, so we can get as good an understanding as possible about who we believe to be still missing.'Commander Cundy also said that today's searches suggest that there may have been people inside the tower who have not been reported missing.'I must consider the fact that there may be others in the building who, for whatever reason, have not been reported to us.'There is also a real possibility that there may be people in the building that no one knows are missing.''I want to hear from anyone who believes that they know someone who may have been living, staying or visiting but has not yet been reported missing to us.'We are not interested in your reasons for not telling us sooner, we just want to understand as best as we can who may still be inside the building.'It is understood that more bodies have been discovered during the search, with the figure due to be officially updated tomorrow.Residents will be given £500 in cash followed by a bank payment for the rest from Monday.Theresa May insisted the Government was doing everything possible to help those caught up in the tragedy.As the Allies neared Paris in the summer of 1944, he fled, heading eastwards towards Germany in a red sports car, dressed in full black Gestapo uniform — now his true colours — and with a submachine gun at this side.

It was 1946 and the war in Europe had been over for almost a year when armed police surrounded an apartment building in central Paris.
They were acting on a tip-off that a wanted traitor-on-the-run, a renegade British soldier who had sided with the Germans and betrayed hundreds of men and women to the Gestapo, was holed up in a flat there.
