Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said Thursday of the toll, "I'd like to hope that it isn't going to be triple figures".

Calling for properties of absentee property owners to be requisitioned in order to rehouse survivors of the fire he declared yesterday: "It is hardly acceptable that in London you have luxury buildings and luxury flats kept empty, as land banks for the future, while the homeless and the poor look for somewhere to live, ' he said".

Police have warned some of the victims may never be identified because of the state of the remains. "You get a lot of fragmentation of bodies, charring of bones and sometimes all that's left is ash", said Peter Vanezis, a professor of forensic medical sciences at Queen Mary University in London. May on Thursday announced a public inquiry while Khan called for an interim report on the fire to be published this summer.

"Something's gone wrong here, something's gone drastically wrong", Communities and Local Government Minister Sajid Javid told BBC radio.

"Many people have been saying for some time now, their concerns about the housing we're talking about now, but also other tower blocks around London".

British Prime Minister Theresa May promised victims of a London fire that left at least 30 dead that a five-million-pound ($6.5 million) support package would be created, the media reported.

May met with hospitalized survivors Friday after coming under criticism for failing to meet with angry residents of the building earlier in the week.

Children banged on closed windows as they were enveloped by the thick black smoke.

One of the first victims has been named as 23-year-old Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali, with the Syria Solitary Campaign director Kareen El Beyrouty launching a campaign towards funeral costs.

Another said: "It was a death trap and they knew it".

Witnesses told how residents in the upper floors used their mobile phone torches to attract attention, before they disappeared from view, their screams of help falling silent.

"His dream was to be able to go back home one day and rebuild Syria".

Although officials would not speculate, experts said Wednesday that their focus was on the building's exterior cladding, which is supposed to be fireproof but which witnesses said had burned like paper, quickly transmitting the fire from unit to unit and from floor to floor.

The focus of criticism centers on the cladding fitted to external walls on the 1970s concrete block as part of a £8.7 million ($11 million, 9.9 million euros) refit completed past year.

"We're working closely with residents and tenants to keep them fully informed about the building inspections, which will be carried out in the next few days".

"All our warnings fell on deaf ears", the group said in a post added Wednesday morning, hours after the fire broke out.

A spokesman said: "We are continuing to reassure residents that we have a robust approach in place to minimise the risk of fire, and prevent it spreading".

Public fury over the London high-rise fire is mounting as exhausted London firefighters continue their grim search Saturday for victims of the inferno that killed at least 30 people.
