A man has been arrested after attempting to gain money and housing by pretending he was affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
Detectives believe the man was working alone and it is not linked to sub-letting or immigration matters.
Detective Superintendent Fiona McCormack said: "The distress and suffering caused to so many families and loved ones that night is harrowing.
"That night people lost their homes all their possessions and tragically their families and loved ones. The focus of all of us should be on supporting victims and families, recovering loved ones from Grenfell Tower and investigating the fire.
"I have made it clear that we are not interested in investigating things such as sub-letting or immigrations matters as I want their help - and do no want there to be any hidden victims of this tragedy.
"However, we will robustly investigate any information about anyone who seeks to capitalise on the suffering of so many."
The man remains in custody in a west London police station but not in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
