The family of a "generous, caring and loving mother and partner", who died in the devastating Grenfell Tower fire, has been named as Berkti Haftom.

Ms Haftom, 29, lived on the 18th floor with her 12-year-old son and was formally identified on Tuesday (July 11) nearly a month after the blaze tore through the west London tower block.

In a heartfelt statement, her family said: "Berkti was a generous, caring, loving mother, partner, sister, auntie and friend and she will be missed by us all forever."

The number of victims believed to have died in the Grenfell Tower still remains at around 80, the Met Police confirmed on Monday (July 10).

The force announced 32 victims have now been formally identified by the coroner, with 55 post-mortem examinations having taken place.

The update by Scotland Yard also revealed 255 people survived the blaze, which swept through every floor of the tower on July 14.

Following the fire, a charity which has raised millions of pounds for victims warned that families will be needing long-term support.

The Kensington and Chelsea Foundation, whose headquarters are close to the scene of the tragedy in North Kensington, said on Monday (July 10) the help must be “rooted in the local community”.

Director of the independent charity, Susan Dolton, spoke out as its Grenfell Tower Fund passed the £4.5 million mark.

She said: “Although we have already made substantial financial commitments to the families affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy, this is not a situation for quick fixes or immediate deadlines.

“We appreciate that this is an extremely stressful time and that people will want to come forward in their own time to access support.

“As such, we need to make sure families can get direct support at the right time, and in the right way, and that is what we are delivering by working with partners with the necessary expertise.”
