A man has been charged with fraudulently claiming money intended for the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Antonio Gouveia, 33, is to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court today, charged with two counts of fraud by false representation.

It is claimed he is not a survivor of the fire, nor someone bereaved by the tragedy, but tried to claim money intended for those people.

He is the 11th person to be charged with a fraud offence relating to the Grenfell fire.

Some 72 people died in the tragedy last June.
