Queen Heckled While Visiting Grenfell Tower Survivors

As the Queen completed her trip to the Westway Sports Centre and returned to her auto, a man was filmed by LBC heckling her.

The Queen heard how the community had rallied in the wake of the blaze and praised those who had come together, adding that their response had "come over very strongly".

Protest leaders said council leaders refused to come out to talk to them.

"That's one of the most awful things I have ever seen", William told a volunteer.

The Sun newspaper said 65 people were now feared dead or missing.

The Queen and Duke of Cambridge went to temporary relief centres where they met volunteers and residents who had lost everything.

The housing body said it wanted to reassure its tenants that "their safety is taken extremely seriously".

According to police, 58 people are missing and presumed dead in the fire, though they say this number could change. The number of victims is expected to grow. "Prince Philip and I would like to pay tribute to the bravery of firefighters and other emergency services officers who put their own lives at risk to save others".

Opponents said May's handling of the fire has thrust her position further into doubt by showing a failure to feel the public mood and act decisively.

Commander Stuart Cundy said they had been able to remove the remains of only 12 victims from the building.

Cundy said one of the victims died during treatment in hospital.

Mrs May arrived in Downing Street on Saturday where she is chairing the Government task force on the disaster. "What are you going to do about it?"

Mr Khan has demanded an interim report to be published this summer and for the inquiry to examine whether the block was refurbished safely.

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

Dr Tomlin said the residents had gone from living normal lives before the tragedy to bringing their frustrations to the very top of Government.

Engineering experts and fire safety specialists believe the building's exterior cladding may have quickly fueled the blaze, overwhelming fire protection devices. A massive fire raced through the 24-story high-rise apartment building in w.

We subjected it to temperatures of 700C - a medium heat for testing.

"The blaze started on the fourth floor and then ten minutes later it hit the sixth floor", Youness Maghribi, an eyewitness, told The New Arab.

'Please confirm as a matter of urgency that everyone from Grenfell Tower and other evacuated properties will be rehoused locally immediately'.

The Times reported that contractors are thought to have used panels with a polythene core for the Grenfell project.

"That is also an absolute priority for the investigation - to establish who they may be". Protesters are anxious that councilors will dispatch homeless residents far from their communities.

"What I'm now absolutely focused on is ensuring that we get that support on the ground", May told BBC.
