London police say 58 people assumed dead in tower block blaze

18 Junio 2017, 12:05 | Crisanna Felipe

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Saturday said that she believed the official response to the fire that had engulfed a high-rise in London on Wednesday morning was "not good enough", reported Reuters.

Of the 58, 30 people are confirmed dead.

"It should define the leadership of May and she should be forced to resign", he said.

Victims of the fire have made clear their demands to Mrs May in the two-and-a-half hour meeting in Number 10 this afternoon.

The Prime Minister had come under attack for visiting the scene of the disaster on Thursday but not meeting survivors or residents. "I absolutely get why they're angry", Green said.

Activists held up posters with pictures of people still missing after the deadly inferno. 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. What emerges in the coming weeks and months will be very hard for many people, including politicians and organisations, but we must get to the truth. "(But there was) nothing, they weren't collating these numbers". We are also with all those from faith networks and communities, who are working tirelessly to provide immediate support.

Anger following the London high-rise rise fire has boiled over with protests erupting in at least two places in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

The tragedy has provoked a enormous response from nearby communities that have donated food and shelter to the victims.

Emergency services are continuing to search for bodies in the now burnt-out building.

Mrs May had earlier sidestepped questions over her response to the disaster, after facing criticism of her reaction to the tragedy.

Residents had raised concerns about the fire safety of the building prior to the blaze.

Ms May, who was criticised a day earlier for not meeting with locals and survivors, visited the area again on Friday to meet with some locals inside a church. "It is our fault, '" Emily Maitlis said to May in an interview.

But public anger has been swelling, with furious residents heckling May and storming the local authority headquarters on Friday.

Newly-appointed Indian-origin housing minister in the Department for Communities and Local Government, Alok Sharma, said, "Every single family will be rehoused in the local area".

The head of state said a saddened country was showing a determination to rebuild lives wrecked by "terrible" tragedy.

"I have friends in the tower and they are not telling us anything", Salwa Buamani, 25, told AFP.

"But it is a awful tragedy".

"As we do everything we can to help them, we will make sure they have the counselling and emotional support they need in the hard days, weeks and years ahead".

He wanted to know why the Prime Minister had not visited victims of the Grenfell Tower fire and why nothing was done to prevent the fire despite warnings about the building's safety.

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. Twenty-four people are still hospitalized, 12 of whom are in critical condition.
