Adele and her husband Simon Konecki visited the block again days later to offer their support to the community, with witnesses saying "she was going around and hugging everyone".

The singer was also spotted Wednesday night at the scene of the massive apartment fire.

Authorities have yet to comment on allegations such as these, even though the death toll rises day after day.

Station manager Ben King told the BBC that Adele showed up to the station, knocked on the window and said she had some cakes for those inside.

It comes after Met Police released footage of the "indescribable" damage inside the tower.

"The search operation will be painstaking and having been in there myself it's really hard to describe the devastation that the fire has caused".

It was a heartbreaking visit as Queen Elizabeth and Prince William heard the stories of other survivors, victims' families, and rescue workers who were affected by the Grenfell Tower inferno - which has left 79 people dead or missing.

Speaking later outside Scotland Yard, Mr Cundy added: "I have investigated major crime for most of my service and I have seen some bad things. I think the most shocking thing that is starting to sink in for people in the area is how - how have we been left to this?"

Mr Cundy would not be drawn on the specifics of the criminal investigation, including whether anyone had been arrested or raids carried out.

He added: "It's hard to describe my feelings, because I can not imagine, and I would not want to put myself in the position of those families who have lost their loved ones".

"We are so humbled by everyone's support", the London Fire Brigade tweeted.

Residents will be given £500 in cash followed by a bank payment for the rest from Monday, with the money coming from the £5 million fund announced by prime minister Theresa May on Friday.
