Stuart Cundy told reporters.

On Saturday, NHS England said 19 people were being treated in hospital, including 10 in critical care.

The BBC estimates about 76 people are missing based on social media and missing posters, which could include some of the 30 confirmed dead.

Firefighters searching the smoldering ruin in west London have recovered six bodies from the 24-story Grenfell Tower, while 11 others have been located but can not yet be removed from the gutted structure.

But Mrs Leadsom, who visited the area in her role as Leader of the Commons, rejected Mr Portillo's criticisms, insisting that Mrs May was "absolutely heartbroken" by the blaze and was simply trying to make sure the Government did everything it could to deal with its aftermath. But May was expected to visit survivors later Friday.

Lovely little fella, about five years old.

While Peter Vanezis, a professor of forensic medical sciences at Queen Mary University in London, echoed his statement, saying: 'When you have a fire that takes hold like that, that is literally an inferno. She appeared to acknowledge him, and then left.

I have heard horrifying stories from the fire brigade, from police and from victims themselves who were in that tower but also from other local residents, some of whom of course have not been able to go back to their homes either.

The mayor for London has demanded for better help from the government in an open letter published on Twitter, adding that other people living in tower blocks were "terrified".

A memorial wall has been created for people to write messages to the missing.

The fire occurred early Wednesday morning, quickly spreading through the 20 storey block.

Local authorities have warned that the death toll is certain to rise and that some of the victims may never be identified.

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. "I was urging her to escape by the stairs", Francis' brother said. But a neighbor, who volunteered to bring Isaac down the building's single staircase, lost track of the boy in the enveloping smoke. The long-term consequences need to be addressed now, they said. "But when I got outside I realized Isaac wasn't there".

"We are here today because you must look at that building with tears streaming down your face", one woman told the group as they neared the foot of the tower.

Cundy said police had started a criminal investigation but there was nothing to suggest "that the fire had been started deliberately".

Whole families are said to be among the missing, including Bassem Choukeir, his wife Nadia, her mother Sariyya and the couple's three daughters Mirna, Fatmeh and Zaynab.

"We have just been trying everything".
