10 still in critical condition after London fire

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:22

Authorities in London said Saturday that 58 people missing are presumed dead from this week's fire disaster at a high-rise tower.

Police Commander Stuart Cundy said the number of 58 is based on reports from the public and may rise.

Mrs May said the public inquiry into the fire will take place "as soon as possible" and insisted the Government had acted on previous warnings about tower block safety by a coroner.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so numerous tower's 600-odd residents.

The British police fired a stun gun at a man who reached for a knife as he ran towards officers at one of the gates to the Westminster parliament in central London yesterday, witnesses said.

Local residents also say they are angry that their safety concerns had been ignored and that people had been told to stay in their flats in the event of a fire.

But after submitting the details to both the council and its tenant management organisation, the London School of Economics researcher said that neither had replied to her offers to help those displaced by the fire, which claimed the lives of at least 58 people.

Cundy said police had started a criminal investigation but there was nothing to suggest "that the fire had been started deliberately". "My heart goes out to those affected", Cundy said. "I really hope it won't, but it may increase", he said.

What makes the London fire maddening for fire experts who believe in the "stay put" rule is that the Grenfell may have lacked numerous safety redundancies necessary to make it work.

Earlier on Saturday, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip observed a moment of silence to honor the victims.


"All our warnings fell on deaf ears and we predicted that a catastrophe like this was inevitable", the group said after the fire broke out, according to the Associated Press.

"It was a death trap and they knew it", one person shouted as demonstrators swelled outside the council building, with dozens going inside and clashing with police and security guards.

The 91-year-old monarch said that Britain remains "resolute in the face of adversity" after the horrendous fire and recent extremist attacks in London and Manchester. She has promised to set up a public inquiry and pledged 5 million pounds ($6.40 million) to help the victims.

Hundreds of people marched from Kensington town hall toward the gutted tower on Friday evening, some brandishing Socialist Worker Party placards emblazoned with slogans including "Defy Tory Rule" and "no justice, no peace". The reason for that - at one point, in terms of our casualty bureau, there were 400 people who were reported missing from Grenfell Tower.

"The response of the emergency services, NHS [National Health Service] and the community has been heroic", May said in a statement released Saturday after the prime minister met with victims and community leaders.

The inferno Wednesday morning at the 24-story Grenfell Tower has led to community anger and protests over the government's response.

In a television interview Friday, she sidestepped questions over whether she had misread the public mood.

Two nearby Underground subway lines were partially shut down Saturday in the fire area to make sure that debris from the tower did not land on the tracks.

"Victims have concerns their voice will not be heard, that their many questions about this tragedy will not be answered".

Some residents had warned months ago that the tower represented a risky fire risk.
