Filipina among those presumed dead in London fire
The Philippine Embassy in the United Kingdom announced on Sunday that a Filipina is among those presumed killed in a massive fire that engulfed 24-storey Grenfell Tower in London.
“The Embassy has the sad task to announce that despite our diligent search made in coordination with the Metropolitan Police and the Filipino Community in London, Mrs. Ligaya Moore has not been found,” the Philippine Embassy said in a statement.
“She has now been included by the MetPolice as among those presumed to have perished in the Grenfell Tower tragedy,” it said.
The embassy said her family has already been informed.
“Our thoughts go out to her family and loved ones as we hope for the recovery of her mortal remains,” it said.
It urged those injured and affected by the fire to identify themselves to help in coordination efforts with the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Filipino community in London.
“You may send us your names and whereabouts by e-mail to email@example.com or by text to 07802790695,” the embassy said. /atm/rga
