Tube lines in west London remain partly suspended amid Grenfell Tower safety concerns.

The Hammersmith and City and Circle lines were still partly closed on Monday morning over fears debris could fall from the tower onto the track.

At least 58 people are presumed dead following the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower in the early hours of Wednesday morning with firefighters still working to recover bodies.

The two tubes lines were partly closed at the weekend at the request of the London Fire Brigade, which confirmed was due to the "short-term" risk debris could fall.

No services are running on the Hammersmith and City and City line between Wood Lane and Edgware Road.

Transport for London (TfL) has warned commuters platforms on the two lines may be busy due to the disruption.

A signal failure at East Ham is also causing severe delays on both Tube lines.

A TfL spokesman said: “This is while investigations continue at the site of the building fore near Latimer Road.

“Trains are operating between Hammersmith and Wood Lane approximately every 15 minutes. Tickets are also being accepted on local buses.

“For the latest updates, speak to a member of staff, follow us on Twitter @circleline and @hamandcityline or use the contacts below.”

Police have so far recovered 16 bodies from Grenfell Tower and the first victim has been formally identified as 23-year-old Mohammed Alhajali.

All 24 floors of the high rise building have now been searched.
