George Galloway has said the length of time it is taking to provide a Grenfell Tower death toll is adding to the grief, stress and strain of victims.

He made the comments on his show on Friday (June 23), when the death toll stood at 79. Now the number of dead or people missing presumed dead has risen to 80, but police have said the final count will not be known until at least the end of the year.

The talkRADIO presenter said: "The delay in the quantifying of the death toll is adding to the grief and the stress and strain of not only the people most affected but it has spread throughout London.

"It’s certainly adding to the grief and anger that is felt in the area which I know well.

"It needs to be cleared up far more quickly than it appears to being cleared up."
