Britain's May Meets with Victims of Deadly High-rise Blaze

On Saturday the Prime Minister responded to the anger among residents who are demanding more information from the Government and local authorities.

The five million pounds are to be used to cover emergency supplies, funeral costs and loss of possessions, Efe news reported.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince William visited the disaster site after Communities secretary Sajid Javid's visit, who promised re-housing the victims, and a thorough inquiry into the incident after experts and residents had cautioned the tower was a fire hazard.

Protesters have stormed Kensington Town hall at a rally in support of those killed in the Grenfell Tower fire.

May's response has been contrasted with that of Corbyn, who hugged locals at the estate during his visit on Thursday, and the royals who met residents and volunteers earlier today.

Fifty-eight people are missing and presumed dead in the Grenfell Tower disaster, the officer in charge of the investigation has said.

An additional £1.5 million will be provided to pay for mental health support to the emergency services, through mental health charity Mind's Blue Light Programme.

"I'm just hoping that they are in hospital, they've made it through the stairway, got out".

He said that feeling of being ignored is a source of much "deep frustration", and told how people have been left feeling "that decisions are taken about their lives and their homes that they are not party to".

Cundy said the police investigation into the blaze would look at the building and its refurbishment in 2016 and vowed to prosecute people "if there is evidence". There is ample food and water but very little privacy or proper bedding, and with the tower destroyed, no one knows where they will be relocated or for how long.

Protesters gathered around Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall on Friday as anger boiled over in London after claims that earlier renovation work may have been responsible for the dramatic spread of the blaze.

"We need to know what commitment the council is taking to ensure this tragedy is not repeated", he said.

"As recent awful events in London and Manchester have brought to light, Blue Light workers do an extremely challenging job, encountering hard and traumatic situations", he said.

Investigators fear that the bodies of many more victims could still be on the building's upper floors, areas firefighters have struggled to reach.

"Put to the test, the United Kingdom has been resolute in the face of adversity", the queen wrote in her message.

"We wait to see what action will come from it, but they were reassured that they were listened to".

The death toll from a fire that engulfed a residential high-rise building in London this week has climbed to 30 as rescue workers continue to search for survivors, police said, adding that the blaze did not appear to have been deliberately started.
