Grenfell Tower victim Isaac Paulos, 5, choked to death on fire fumes

Coroner describes complexity of identifying victims as inquests open and scepticism about official death toll grows

The coroner overseeing formal investigations into the causes of death for each of the Grenfell Tower fire victims has spoken of the almost indescribable complexity of identifying them as scepticism about the official death toll grows.

The Westminster coroner, Dr Fiona Wilcox, said the removal of bodies and formal identification would continue to be hampered by how dangerous the Kensington tower block has become since the blaze.
