'May must go': Hundreds chant outside Downing Street after Grenfell Tower fire

Angry protests after London fire

So as questions mount, what needs to be done to ensure tragedies like Grenfell Tower don't occur again and who is really to blame?

And they called for a public inquest, arguing that a planned inquiry was not good enough.

One of the organisers has read out a statement outside the town hall, while other protesters were chanting slogans, TV images from Sky News showed.

May has outlined a series of measures to help those left homeless by the devastating fire which engulfed the 24-storey apartment block on Wednesday.

Police say 58 people at the tower are now confirmed or presumed dead.

Urgent reviews of social housing stock have been ordered by councils across the country following the Grenfell Tower fire.

"Everything possible will be done to help them", the prime minister said of the victims in a statement.

Elsewhere there was more public fury as hundreds of protesters surrounded Kensington Town Hall demanding answers.

Police say the harrowing search for remains had paused Friday because of safety concerns at the blackened tower but has resumed.

The protesters are seeking a list of demands which has been given to the council, Xinhua news agency reported.

Authorities believe 58 people have died in the Grenfell Tower inferno.

Earlier, emergency services spent a third day searching for bodies in the burnt-out tower in North Kensington.

Some observers asked whether hazards in the Grenfell complex, which had 120 apartments that housed as many as 600 people, were ignored because its residents are mainly poor. It was one of many government-owned buildings that was remodeled under an urban regeneration plan in order to increase the number of units, while making it more appealing to private tenants. Corbyn was even seen hugging a local resident at St.

Corbyn ran a campaign promising to end austerity in the recent general election in which May's Conservatives lost their parliamentary majority.

Almost 110 families made homeless from the blaze are being housed at hotels in west London. Her government is also due to launch hard Brexit talks with the European Union on Monday.

Another woman told the Standard: "I'm here to shout at the top of my lungs that this is not fair".

"She should have been there with the residents. Happy Birthday. Thank you for taking the time to visit the people who have lost everything and showing that whilst the government doesn't seem to care our head of state does", another added.

"The local community feels their grief has been made worse by the lack of information about their missing family members and friends", he wrote.

There are questions about why the block was not fitted with sprinklers or a central smoke alarm, as well as whether the recent refurbishment, including the use of cladding that was blamed for worsening previous building fires in France, the United Arab Emirates and Australia, helped fuel the flames.

"People are terrified that the same thing could happen to them", said Khan.

Khan is London's first Muslim mayor.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William visited an aid distribution site Friday for the tower's residents and met with volunteers.

Bishop Tomlin, who is speaking at Sunday's service, said after the meeting that residents left feeling they had been listened to.

London Police have launched an investigation to determine whether any crimes contributed to the blaze.

"We as the police, we investigate criminal offences - I am not sitting here and saying there are criminal offences that have been committed, that's why you do an investigation, to establish it", he said. Officials warn that no further survivors are likely to be found.
