One month on from the fatal Grenfell Tower fire which is so far confirmed to have claimed the lives of at least 80 people, the Metropolitan Police disaster victim identification team continues to work tirelessly on the recovery process.
Member of the team Sergeant Alistair Hutchins describes the work as "horrendous, challenging, impactive".
During an interview he spoke of of how every member of the team is a volunteer, explaining: "No matter what skill set, no matter what rank, it's about doing the job and getting those families back to their loved ones."
The 24-storey building went up in flames in the early hours of the morning of June 14 and with the recovery process still ongoing, Sergeant Hutchins said: "I can honestly say this is the hardest scene we have had to manage and deal with, ever."
He says the team are now at a stage where they are conducting a fingertip search of every flat, searching down to 6mm by hand.
It's the "really hard part" says Sergeant Hutchins, who explains there is approximately 14 and a half tonnes of debris on each floor.
"We are doing our best" he added, conveying a message to the affected families.
He said: "We are trying our utmost hardest to get you the identification, to get your loved ones back to you, this takes time but we are doing out best and we will get them the answers they need."
