London apartment blaze: Firefighter's despair he 'could have done more'

19 Junio 2017, 08:38 | Crisanna Felipe

Grief over the Grenfell Tower disaster turned into angry protests yesterday as the official death toll rose to at least 30.

Public fury over the London high-rise fire is mounting as exhausted London firefighters continue their grim search Saturday for victims of the inferno that killed at least 30 people.

He said: "I've spent time with the local community, not just the Christian congregation, but members of all faiths here at the church, grieving, sharing their stories".

An LFB spokesman told the Guardian: "The report will not be in the public domain until that inquest is complete".

He told the Press Association: "I'm positive because I think it was a real chance for local residents, people affected by this tragedy, to voice their concerns directly to the Prime Minister so that she could hear them". He says it will take weeks or longer to recover and identify all the dead at the building.

The search of the 24-floor building had been paused on Friday due to safety concerns, but has now resumed, Cundy said.

Community groups have said warnings about poor fire safety have always been ignored, and that in the aftermath of the disaster, officials had failed to immediately take care of those affected.

Building safety measures in New South Wales are being investigated to avoid an incident similar to the London Grenfell Tower fire, Premier Gladys Berejiklian has said.

"The Prime Minister is distraught about what has happened", said Mr Green, who was appointed Mrs May's deputy in the wake of the election.

"The response of the emergency services, NHS and the community has been heroic", she said in a statement.

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea said in a statement Friday that all residents of Grenfell Tower who had asked for help had been housed in hotels and that it was looking for interim accommodation for those people and others living nearby who could not return home. We know that there are still bodies of those who died inside the building and we want to return those people to their families as soon as we possibly can.

Tory MP Sarah Wollaston said she was "beyond disgusted" by the revelation.

He said people are "angry not simply at the poor response in the days afterwards from the council and the Government, but the years of neglect from the council and successive governments".

"We are already releasing funds to take care of the immediate needs of those affected as well as other support", a spokesperson 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 somber but that the British people were resolute in the face of adversity. Residents who survived the tower blaze lost everything and have no idea where they are going to live, or how they will get back on their feet.

The fire has also been transformed into a symbol of class inequality - the Grenfell Tower's charred remains stand high above one of the British capital's wealthiest neighborhoods.
