At least 58 likely dead in London fire

It quoted an unnamed representative as saying that the group had spoken about their “demands and what we expect”.

Queen Elizabeth and her grandson Prince William visited a community centre on Friday where some survivors are being housed, and where volunteers have been inundated with donations of clothes and food.

Grenfell Tower itself is 120 flats”.

“There are 58 people who we have been told were in Grenfell Tower on the night that are missing and therefore, sadly, I have to assume that they are dead”.

May said after the meeting there have been “huge frustrations” in the community as people tried to get information about the fire investigation.

She said support on the ground for families immediately after the blaze was “not good enough” and ordered that more staff be deployed at the scene in high-visibility clothing.

At least 58 people are now missing and presumed dead in the Grenfell Tower fire, police have said.

A message from the church’s president, Roger Walton, read out to the congregation, said his prayers were with local people, adding: “You are a symbol of hope in the dark days”.

Commander Cundy also said that the police had received more than 6,000 calls and that the search will end in one of more weeks. “I am getting out to safety”, said Jennifer Lopez, who works in a high-rise building a short walk from the World Trade Center in New York City.

“I have friends in the tower and they are not telling us anything”, she told AFP, adding: “We can’t respect the bodies”. Contractors are removing Grenfell details from their websites. The rules vary from place to place, as does advice about when to evacuate, but fire experts say the “shelter-in-place” directive is usually applied to buildings of 15 stories or more.

Meanwhile, according to the Associated Press, Trade Minister Greg Hands said Sunday that the government is carrying out an “urgent inspection” of the roughly 2,500 similar tower blocks across Britain to assess their safety, while an opposition lawmaker urged the government to quickly secure documents in the Grenfell renovation for the criminal investigation.

Major roads near the stricken building were open Saturday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, criticized shortly after the blaze for failing to meet with victims, says the public inquiry looking into the tragedy will report directly to her. “People have lost their lives and others have lost everything, all their possessions, their home and everything”. There has been growing public anger at the government’s initial response to the disaster’s aftermath and reports that external paneling put up during a recent renovation contributed to the flames’ rapid spread.

She sought to combat some of the criticism with a meeting with residents, victims, volunteers and community leaders at Downing Street today.

Lammy, who represents Tottenham in north London, has also expressed concerns that vital evidence concerning the refurbishment might be destroyed or lost before it can be seized by police. Hundreds of others have been left homeless and dozens are missing.

Workers will hold a muinute’s silence at 11am to remember the 58 people confirmed to have died in the horrific blaze at the 23-storey tower block last week.

His statement came as Queen Elizabeth II reflected upon the sombre mood in the United Kingdom following tragedies in London and Manchester in recent weeks.

“My government will continue to do absolutely everything possible to help all of those affected through the hard days, weeks, months and years ahead”.
