Police in London have identified the latest victim of the Grenfell Tower fire, 29-year-old Berkti Haftom.

A police statement said Haftom was a mother, though it did not say to how many children.

She was one of at least 80 people to die when the west London tower block burned down on June 14.

A statement from her family said: “Berkti was a generous, caring, loving mother, partner, sister, aunty and friend and she will be missed by us all forever.”

Police are continuing to search through the burned wreckage in the charred tower block, and say their full investigation will take months.

Members of the local community, who are in the process of being rehoused by the government, have complained that authorities have been slow to announce deaths and make clear true human cost of the fire.

At a briefing two weeks ago the Metropolitan Police set the latest toll at 80, and said the final number may not be known until 2018.

Meanwhile, officials are scrambling to test hundreds of other buildings to see whether they have robust enough fire standards to avoid a repeat of the Grenfell fire.

Around 200 buildings have so far failed the test, though government departments have been very reluctant to specify which ones.

Business Insider is monitoring the figures, and has compiled a list of those named so far.

The coroner in charge of the Grenfell aftermath has so far formally identified 32 of those killed at Grenfell, including Haftom. Here are the identities of those who have been made public:
