London fire: British PM orders full inquiry

May ordered a full public ensure that "this awful tragedy is properly investigated". After watching the events unfold on the news she said she wanted to make sure the residents who had lost their rooms were cared for.

Officials said measures were already in place to ensure tall blocks were safe, but that they would be revisited to see if any action needed to be taken.

Scotland Yard has launched a criminal inquiry into the fire as it has emerged that the type of cladding panels used on the building have been widely prohibited on tall structures in the US since 2012 because of its flammability.

Media reports have said about 70 people are expected to have been killed, although police have not confirmed this.

Theresa May has been chased out of Kensington by an angry crowd shouting "coward!" and "shame on you!", as she was bundled into her vehicle amid growing anger over the Grenfell Tower fire.

Police have warned some of the victims may never be identified because of the state of the remains.

"We have to get to the bottom of this - the truth has got to come out and it will", he told volunteers at a local church.

Anger has focused over the cladding used to cover its surface.

Michael Portillo, who was part of a Tory government in the 1990s, accused May on the BBC of wanting "an entirely controlled situation in which she didn't use her humanity".

Planning documents detailing the recent refurbishment of the block did not refer to a type of fire barrier that safety experts said must be used when high-rise blocks are re-clad.

The U.K. newspaper said that Omnis Exteriors manufactured the aluminum composite material used in the cladding.

Alhajali, who lived on the 14th floor, was a civil engineering student at West London University.

But even those within her own party said May should have faced the locals herself earlier. "It's because that tower was such an eyesore for these people in very expensive houses just opposite", she said.

Hundreds of thousands of pounds have been raised online for the victims by Thursday, while local community centres were inundated by donations of clothes and food.

He also said he would strip the controversial cladding, which is thought to have allowed the fire to spread so rapidly, from such buildings.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, the X Factor boss revealed that he had also visited the site and saw firsthand how residents have reached out to help one another.

Earlier, the police launched a criminal inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire incident after it emerged that cladding, used on Grenfell Tower is banned in the U.S., and that it would have cost just 5,000 pounds extra for the contractors to apply a fire-resistant version of panelling to the building, according to a report by the Independent.
