But the visits, which took place more than 48 hours after the devastating fire broke out, have done little to quell the growing anger over the way she has dealt with the tragedy. Wherever we can, we will bring people to justice if there is evidence.

The Grenfell Tower housed about 600 people in 120 apartments.

The latest news from the West London Grenfell Tower fire site list 58 people missing and presumed to be dead, London police Commander Stuart Cundy said on Saturday.

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". British media have reported that contractors installed a cheaper, less flame-resistant type of exterior paneling on the 24-story tower in a renovation that was completed just a year ago.

Ronnie King, the UK's former chief fire officer, told Al Jazeera: "I wouldn't wish to denigrate those who installed the cladding because - whatever the cladding was - it did not have to be fire resistant under the building regulations", said King.

Javid said inspections of similar buildings had been ordered, with particular attention to the modern cladding used to beautify and add an insulation layer to ageing concrete and steel structures. One opposition lawmaker urged the Conservative government and police to immediately seize all documents related to the tower renovation.

London's Metropolitan Police confirmed Friday they had launched a criminal investigation into the incident.

"When the truth comes out about this tragedy, we may find that there is blood on the hands of a number of organizations", Lammy said.

Amongst the dead was artist Khadija Saye, whose photography is now being exhibited at the Vienna Biennale. He has not provided details about the inquiry.

Speaking on ITV's Peston on Sunday, she said: "Kensington and Chelsea are giving £10 to the survivors when they go to hotels".

Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip have observed a minute of silence to honour the victims of the London high-rise fire.

Prime Minister Theresa May had to virtually flee the church she visited in order to meet survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire, which has killed 30 people and injured scores of others.

May also said that a public inquiry that is looking into the Grenfell Fire will report directly to her and that she has asked for daily updates from the neighbourhood to be sent to her. Counselors are already working with 52 families.

The 23-year-old Alhajali is the only victim of the Grenfell Tower fire to be officially named as the hard process of identifying human remains continues.

"I called him and said: "Where are you?', I said: 'Where are you?' He said: 'I'm in the flat.' I said: 'Why you didn't come?"

Police said on Sunday the number of people feared to have died would rise from the current total of 58, which includes 30 confirmed fatalities, as they carry out a full forensic and systematic search of the building.
