London tower fire: 58 people missing presumed dead, say police

18 Junio 2017, 08:50 | Benedicto Grullon

British police say 58 people are missing and presumed to have died in this week's blaze at a west London highrise apartment building. By Saturday, officials counted 58 people missing and presumed dead, including 30 deaths previously confirmed. The new figure of 58 includes the 30 that had already been announced.

Tensions were high two days after the overnight fire gutted the huge housing block, killing at least 30 people and leaving dozens missing and hundreds homeless.

The fire at the 24-story public housing project broke out early Wednesday - after Britons had been hit with three terrorist attacks in less than three months, in London and Manchester. Firefighters took more than 24 hours to bring the blaze under control.

'Our deep gratitude to the emergency services, who continue to respond swiftly.

"Yesterday afternoon following expert advice for the safety of our officers, from the Metropolitan Police the London fire brigade and the London Ambulance arrive, we had to pause that search and recovery".

There was a large police presence as Mrs May met a group of victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders at St Clement's Church close to the scene of the horrific blaze on Friday afternoon.

Mr 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".

From systematically privatising public housing and the National Health Service, to loosening financial regulations and allowing banks to engage in their particular brand of casino capitalism, both Conservative and Labour governments in the United Kingdom have bought in to and endorsed the idea that markets are the best guarantors of economic efficiency and the public good. May returned to the neighbourhood the following day to meet with survivors at St.

Police have been struggling to come up with an authoritative list of who was in the building when the fire started, making it hard to determine how many had died.

He said: "We took our demands to the council and we expected a response from the chief executive who has failed to turn up". The group past year completed a 10 million pound ($12.8 million) renovation that included new outside insulation panels, double-paned windows and a communal heating system.

"What I'm now absolutely focused on is ensuring that we get that support on the ground", May said in a BBC Newsnight interview.

The first victim of the Grenfell Tower inferno in London has been named as Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali (23), who came to Britain in 2014 and was studying engineering in London.

But unlike opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn and London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who was confronted by a young boy asking "How many children died?", May did not meet with residents, prompting criticism from locals, media and within her Conservative party.

"We want justice!", "Shame on you!", and "Killers!", the protesters shouted as they scuffled with security guards in the lobby of the building. The meeting is unlikely to quell complaints that May has been slow to reach out to victims, despite her announcement of a $6.4 million emergency fund to help the displaced families.

"If someone was in Grenfell tower and they did escape, and they haven't made it known to the police or to their family, I would urge them to contact the police casualty bureau".
