London fire: Hundreds rally for Grenfell Tower victims

Hundreds of people have descended on Westminster in a rally calling for action in the wake of the Grenfell Tower blaze.

Demonstrators marched to Kensington Town Hall with signs reading "justice", "answers" and demands for an inquest.

Some entered the foyer and a number of people could later be seen being confronted by police and security guards in high visibility vests.

The visit comes as the number of those missing rose to 76, with police saying some of those killed might never be identified.
