58 presumed dead in London tower fire

The minute's silence was also observed across all Government buildings and at schools and offices across London.

Major roads near the stricken building were open Saturday.

Earlier the group, made up of survivors of the fire, evacuees from nearby buildings, volunteers and community leaders, criticised Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation for its reaction to the disaster.

Nisha Parti, who has been helping victims, revealed that the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire have only received £10 and minimal help from the council. Experts believe the aluminum composite panels, which contain a plastic insulation material, may have helped spread the flames quickly up the outside of the tower. Hana Wahabi said she begged her brother, Abdulaziz Wahabi, to leave but he told her "there was too much smoke". "People have lost their lives and others have lost everything, all their possessions, their home and everything".

Officials are using dental records, fingerprints and DNA samples to try and positively identify victims.

With blackened rubble strewn across the floor and exposed pipes, one room is unrecognisable as a home until a bath and sink come into view - the dividing wall destroyed completely by the fire.

The queen's official birthday is marked in June when the weather is often nicer than in April, the actual month of her birth.

London Fire Brigade firefighters say they have been "overwhelmed" at the support they have recieved in the wake of the devastating blaze.

British health authorities say that 19 patients are still being treated at four London hospitals.

The new regulations will also strengthen guidance on timber frame construction, including new provisions in respect of timber frame party walls between housing units; addressing issues raised by Irish fire safety experts on foot of the circumstances of a fire in such a development, and evidence of defective construction in some estates. Other diagrams in the Reynobond brochure show that panels with a fire retardant core - the FR model, according to Arconic's website - can be used for buildings of up to 30 metres tall.

He told MPs: "We believe that it is the responsibility of the fire industry, rather than the Government, to market fire sprinkler systems effectively and to encourage their wider installation".

The rule change means victims of the Manchester Arena bombing in May, which left 22 killed and more than 110 adults and children injured, can receive compensation from the £11.2m We Love Manchester Emergency Fund without having their benefits cut.

While the blaze has prompted an outpouring of generosity, with many people donating provisions and clothes, it has also unleashed rage at the authorities as the charred tower was cast as a deadly symbol of a deeply divided society.

Many are demanding answers for how the blaze spread so quickly.

This means the law often requires companies to act safely without giving a specific definition of what this would involve, said Christopher Miers of Probyn Miers. "This year, however, it is hard to escape a very somber national mood".

Queen Elizabeth II said the disaster had cast a sombre pall over Britain, but insisted the country was showing resolve in the face of adversity. May on Thursday announced a public inquiry while Khan called for an interim report on the fire to be published this summer.
