Police said on Saturday that at least 58 people had been confirmed or were assumed to have died in this week's blaze at the Grenfell Tower block.

British outlets said May struggled to offer support or leadership in the wake of the blaze, accusing her of lacking emotional intelligence and calling her "Maybot".

"The package of support I'm announcing today is to give the victims the immediate support they need to care for themselves and for loved ones", she said, according to the Downing Street statement on Friday. Some 70 residents remain unaccounted for.

The building is located in one of the richest sections of London, however, it's home to some of the poorest people of London. Several dozen police, including mounted officers, were in attendance. Protesters are anxious that councilors will dispatch homeless residents far from their communities.

He said it will take "weeks or longer" to recover and identify all the dead in the social housing building that was left charred and gutted by the devastating blaze.

Clement's Church in hopes to confront U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, but the Conservative Party leader exited the building through a side door without facing the public, BuzzFeed reports.

After her visit, Mrs May said: "Everyone affected by this tragedy needs reassurance that the Government is there for them at this bad time - and that is what I am determined to provide". Wherever we can, we will bring people to justice if there is evidence.

The Grenfell Tower housed about 600 people in 120 apartments.

In addition to fire and police investigations into the inferno, May has promised to hold public hearings. Although the police and fire service expect the number to rise significantly, they are following their usual procedure of only raising it as they confirm deaths. She visited the former apartment building on Thursday and failed to even speak to survivors. "However, there may be other people who were in there on the night that others were not aware were there", he said.

Locals yelled questions at London mayor Sadiq Khan when he walked through the neighbourhood on Friday. They are furious that people still are missing and that the local government hasn't done enough to help them in the aftermath. The leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council, the authority that owns the tower block, told the BBC it would not use the type of cladding fitted to Grenfell Tower in other buildings in the borough.

They met volunteers, local residents and community representatives while visiting Westway Sports Centre in west London, near the burnt down 24-storey Grenfell Tower.

"That's one of the most awful things I have ever seen", William said of the tower's blackened shell.
