The first images from inside the burned-out Grenfell Tower in London have emerged.

UK media confirmed they were taken from inside the tower where many lost their lives in a blazing inferno earlier this week.

The death toll so far is 17, but could end up in the hundreds as authorities search the hollowed-out building, which residents had long-feared was a serious fire risk.
