London fire: Queen Elizabeth issues somber message after site visit

"It might be that some of those are safe and well, but for whatever reason have not reached [out] to let us know. I said 'why you didn't come - they brought us outside, I thought you are with us.' He said 'no one brought me outside.' He said, 'why you left me?'"

"Mohammad was a very awesome and kind person". He gave love to everyone.

His statement came as Queen Elizabeth II reflected upon the sombre mood in the United Kingdom following tragedies in London and Manchester in recent weeks. "Our whole family will miss Mohammad dearly and he will never be forgotten".

This will ensure those involved in the response to the tragedy are able "to receive targeted support should they need it", Downing Street said.

The first victim has been confirmed as 23-year-old Mohammed Alhajali, a Syrian refugee who lived in the tower in north Kensington.

A spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs said: "We have no confirmation that any Irish citizens are caught up in the incident but we stand ready to provide assistance".

Rescue efforts are expected to take a long time, as Grenfell was severely damaged and emergency services have to reinforce it before they can enter the higher floors. There are a lot of fearless firefighters and police and ambulance workers.

Residents demanded a separate independent investigation into the £9.7 million refurbishment which covered the building with cladding that many believe helped the deadly fire to spread.

In addition to fire and police investigations into the inferno, May has promised to hold public hearings.

There is no "known immediate cause for concern" in Ireland, Murphy said.

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 sombre but that the British people were resolute in the face of adversity. British press is reporting that as many as 70 people are still missing and unaccounted for in the tower.

Cundy said police had now managed to get to the top of the tower and had undertaken a first visual search for victims, ahead of later painstaking searches.

"The Brigade advised that a section of track be temporarily closed due to the short-term risk of some debris from the tower falling onto the track", a London Fire Brigade spokeswoman said.

His family said in a statement released by police: "Mohammed was a very wonderful and kind person".

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. "But it would also be deeply distressing for families for us to release wrong information", he added. The recovery effort resumed this afternoon, but the police warn it could take weeks for answers to emerge.

"Absolutely she has the same degree of sympathy and horror at these events that we all have", he added.

People look at posters of missing persons attached to railings after the fire that gutted Grenfell Tower, a residential tower block in west London on June 14.

May said after the meeting Saturday that there have been "huge frustrations" in the community as people tried to get information.

"I would break the rules more than what I would have done", he said.

Questions over the Prime Minister's judgement were raised as she was accused of failing to show empathy with those affected by the tragedy.
