London highrise fire: 58 missing, presumed dead, police say

19 Junio 2017, 10:52 | Crisanna Felipe

British Prime Minister Theresa May promised victims of a London fire that left at least 30 dead that a five-million-pound ($6.5 million) support package would be created, the media reported.

At least 58 people are dead or presumed dead after the blaze.

'It is really important that we are clear about the scale of the challenge facing us as our teams search Grenfell Tower to recover those people still inside and return them to their loved ones. "This prime minister is not viable". Everybody is. It's not to say it is unfair on us but I mean, we were put in a situation.

David Lammy, the Labour MP for Tottenham who lost his friend Khadija Saye in the fire, has said the "very best senior officers" in the force should undertake the criminal investigation into the blaze.

"I spoke to the casualty helpline and they didn't have any information. they didn't offer any help. (But there was) nothing, they weren't collating these numbers".

Anger boiled over on Friday as people stormed Kensington & Chelsea Town Hall.

"People raised these concerns, people were expressing issues regarding the safety and risky living conditions", says Lancaster West Residents Association chairwoman Olesea Matcovschi.

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

But even those within her own party said May should have faced the locals herself earlier.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so numerous tower's 600-odd residents.

Mrs May was greeted with cries of "coward" and "shame on you" as she returned to the site of the devastating fire in west London on Friday.

One woman wept saying it was because Mrs May had declined to speak to anyone outside the meeting. He said: "If there had been a sprinkler system in this building there wouldn't have been a fire when the fire brigade got there because it would have been contained in the room [where] it started".

"This is an absolutely bad fire that took place".

She added: "I have ordered that more staff be deployed across the area, wearing high visibility clothing, so they can easily be found, dispense advice and ensure the right support is provided".

"I've heard stories of heroism - from Christians, from Muslims and from others - looking after their brothers and sisters and neighbors, and doing the job that we expect from this brilliant, fantastic community that is here in this part of London", he said outside St Clement's Church, which is also operating as a relief center for survivors.

He said: "Little can compare in recent times to a tragedy on this scale - the response from the local authority has simply not been good enough". People have lost their lives and others have lost everything, all their possessions, their home and everything.

Some Grenfell Tower residents had warned months ago fire safety issues at the building meant that it was at risk of a "catastrophic" event.

Protesters are demanding to know why long-standing fire safety concerns raised by a tenants' group about the public housing tower, tucked in the city's ritzy North Kensington neighborhood, had not been addressed.

"The Government has taken action on the recommendations of the coroner's report", she insisted.

"We entirely support the calling of the public inquiry and will cooperate in whatever way we can with it so that local people have all the answers about what has happened", the council, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, said.
