Still in Critical Condition After London Fire

19 Junio 2017, 04:32 | Crisanna Felipe

The queen was born in April but celebrates in June.

Protest leaders said council leaders refused to come out to talk to them.

The fire at the 24-story public housing project broke out early Wednesday.

In addition to the deadly fire, Britain has suffered three terror attacks in recent months.

Residents affected by the London tower block inferno were passionate and angry during a lengthy exchange with Prime Minister Theresa May, a bishop who sat with them has revealed.

Her political future - already in doubt after her Conservative Party lost its governing majority in snap elections she called - has been further questioned because of her response to the fire.

The refurb also didn't include any sprinklers, but Hammond claimed they weren't necessarily needed to ensure other tall buildings in the country don't go up in flames. "My commitment to families is that as soon as we can, we will locate and recover their loved ones", Cundy said.

And after taking heavy criticism, she came back Friday and was faced with angry crowds shouting at her.

National media in London reported extensively Friday that it would have cost just 5,000 pounds (6,400 USA dollars) extra for a cladding material with better fire protection qualities.

Police say at least 58 people are either confirmed or presumed dead, with the figure likely to rise in coming days.

'As London faith representatives, our united minds, hearts and prayers are with everyone in Grenfell Tower and with the families and friends of all those who are impacted.

The building had been home to a diverse group of residents, many of them from Sudan, Eritrea, and Syria.

Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali, 23, was also killed in the fire. "That is very controversial here as it is a place that people have made their homes, have families, and have networks", she added.

Mrs May has promised a public inquiry into the catastrophe, and also pledged £5 million (Dh23.5m) of support, housing guarantees and help with access to bank accounts and cash.

Tomlin said the residents had gone from living normal lives before the tragedy to bringing their frustrations to the very top of government.

Neither side immediately released details.

The group said: "In our meeting at Downing Street, we explained to the Prime Minister the anger of all residents towards the management of the estate over a long period of time, paving the way to this tragedy".

Cundy said police will investigate the tower's refurbishment project, which experts believe may have left the building in the north Kensington area more vulnerable to a catastrophic blaze.

One incensed man on the streets demanded to know why May hasn't even done as much as ask for a minute's silence from the British people to mark those who died in the disaster.

Queen Elizabeth and her grandson Prince William visited a community center Friday close to where the disaster happened, and spoke to people affected by the tragedy.
