His inaction looks increasingly likely to have cost the lives of people trapped in a tower block as it filled with smoke and flames.

After a turbulent three months which has seen Britain scarred by three deadly Islamist militant attacks and now the tower blaze, Queen Elizabeth said the mood was deeply somber but that the British people were resolute in the face of adversity. All the rest are homeless.

Mansour also said the council had been asked to provide a list of all the people who lived in the tower block, but had replied that it was unable to.

Following the meeting, Mrs May released a strongly-worded statement in which she said on-the-ground support for families in the immediate aftermath of the blaze "was not good enough".

Dozens of people attending an angry protest for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy stormed the town hall in London's richest borough on Friday, accusing the authorities of ignoring their plight.

Police earlier confirmed the death toll from the fire, which broke out in the early hours of Wednesday morning, had reached 30; there are fears the number of those who died could rise considerably, with 76 residents still unaccounted for.

They have come to listen to a group of local lawyers and social housing experts who have taken it upon themselves to advise those who have lost their homes on the best course of action.

Flames from the huge fire which engulfed Grenfell Tower leapt several storeys during the blazing, prompting witnesses to suggest that it had spread via cladding installed on the building as part of a refurbishment completed past year.

"If there are lessons to be learned from the investigation into this tragedy then those will be taken on board".

London's fire department says that the reason for the subway closure near the high-rise fire disaster is because of a "short-term risk of some debris falling onto the tracks".

The devastating fire that struck a high-rise tower in London may have been so powerful that it destroyed much of the DNA evidence needed to identify its victims. A new sign was put up, removing that detail.

Sky News reports hundreds of people have joined the protest outside Kensington Town Hall.

Two nearby Underground subway lines were partially shut down Saturday in the fire area to make sure that debris from the tower did not land on the tracks.

Emergency inspections will begin this weekend of all buildings in Britain similar to Grenfell Tower as it emerged that the cladding used on the structure was the cheaper and more flammable of two options made by its manufacturer.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so numerous tower's 600-odd residents. Police have established a security cordon around the building to protect public safety and allow searchers easy access to the wrecked building.

Facing increasing criticism for not meeting with locals sooner, British Prime Minister Theresa May will visit those injured in a London tower block blaze in hospital on Friday, as pressure mounts on her after a failed election gamble. A police-led investigation into the fire is now ongoing and it is likely to be some time until the inquiry takes place.

Some desperate residents pleaded to speak to the queen and her grandson about their plight and the fate of missing children as they left the site, with William promising he would return.

"May must go", "blood on your hands" and "justice for Grenfell" were some of the chants that resounded the streets which were swarming with angry agitators, reports the Independent.

MP Tom Brake said: "It is simply beyond belief to think that if just £5,000 more had been spent, these tragic deaths could have been prevented".
