Protesters storm town hall after London fire

Cundy said there may have been people in the tower that police are not aware of, which would add to the death toll.

Queen Elizabeth, 91, and her grandson Prince William also visited residents and emergency workers on Friday.

The Metropolitan police have officially begun a criminal investigation into the fire. He says "my heart goes out to those affected".

He said: "The building itself is in a very hazardous state". A new sign was put up, removing that detail.

But the authority's latest statement said: "While we will try do our upmost (sic) to ensure those affected remain in or near the borough, given the number of households involved, it is possible the council will have to explore housing options that may become available in other parts of the capital".

Of the 58, he said 30 were confirmed dead.

The fire forced residents to flee through black smoke down the single stairwell, jump out of windows or even drop their children to safety.

"Seeing the building made a big impact and I think the thing that really hit home for me was seeing that wall [of tributes]".

May failed to win an outright majority in the June snap election and is now battling to strike a deal with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party to support her government.

"They are fully aware of the true scale of this tragedy but can not comprehend why they are not being given more information". It follows her visiting the scene in west London on Thursday morning. They are furious that people still are missing and that the local government hasn't done enough to help them in the aftermath.

She will meet victims, volunteers and community leaders afterwards.

A soccer player says that he will donate 50 pounds (more than $60) for each minute he plays at a European youth tournament to the victims of London's high-rise inferno.

Her second visit ended with jeers from local residents whose frustration was confounded when the PM was quickly ushered into a auto after visiting a local church where help was being organised. Bellerin, a defender, also plays for London club Arsenal. The monarch has expressed her sympathies to families of victims of the blaze. She said: "I've come out here because people had no hope. The PM has sent her best wishes to HM Queen on the event of her birthday".

As the video continues to record, Rania is heard praying and saying police are telling people to get out but that they can't due to the fire and the smoke. British health authorities say that 19 patients are still being treated at four London hospitals.

The protesters also requested a list of the number of protesters in Grenfell Tower.

But the visits, which took place more than 48 hours after the devastating fire broke out, have done little to quell the growing anger over the way Mrs May has dealt with the tragedy.

On Friday, grief over the disaster turned into anger as protesters took to the streets to vent over the fire which killed at least 30, with dozens more deaths feared.

The tragedy has provoked a huge response from nearby communities. On Friday afternoon, May visited the Chelsea and Westminster hospitals, and in the evening she visited a church which is sheltering people affected by the fire.

Many are demanding answers for how the blaze spread so quickly.

Speaking live on the radio before she handed out gold awards in the 500 words contest, Camilla said, "I'm sure all of you here today would like to join me in sending our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the victims, their families and friends, who were so tragically involved in the horrific fire in North Kensington".
