An investigation has been launched after money was allegedly stolen from a flat in the remains of Grenfell Tower.

The Met Police said it believes the alleged theft took place after June 20, six days after a devastating fire broke out at Grenfell Tower killing at least 80 people.

Officers refused to say how much money was taken, while officials are reviewing security at the site.

The alleged theft has sparked fears that more flats in the tower may have been targeted, with the Guardian reporting other residents of the tower believe they may have also been victims.

The cash was first reported stolen on September 8.

London MP David Lammy took to Twitter to blast the Met over the alleged thefts, tweeting: “Where were the police? This is a crime scene. We are seeing a litany of failures for Grenfell survivors.”

A Met spokesman said: “An investigation into the alleged theft is now being carried out.

“Steps have been taken to review the security of all the flats within Grenfell Tower and some changes immediately put into place.”

At least 80 people died and hundreds more were left homeless when flames engulfed the 24-storey block on June 14.
