30 confirmed dead in London high-rise fire

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:32

"From the moment they would have heard about the fire, waking up that morning seeing the bad scenes on their television sets I think they would have been immediately anxious about their families". Twenty-four injured survivors are still being treated, 12 of them in critical care.

Anger swelled, meanwhile, as survivors and others pressed for answers on whether inadequate safety systems or substandard construction material could have contributed to the blaze.

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.

On Thursday, the Queen paid tribute to the "bravery" of firefighters who battled the fire and praised the "incredible generosity" of volunteers offering their support.

When asked on Thursday about why she did not meet residents or visit a local community center, May said she wanted to visit the scene of the incident to be briefed by the emergency services.

He also explained that it was a visit to the building that made a "big impact" on him and he decided he wanted to raise money for those affected by the tragedy. We will cooperate fully with all the relevant authorities in order to ascertain the cause of this tragedy.

Grenfell Tower is a public housing project owned by the local government council and managed by a non-profit known as the Kensington and Chelsea Tenants Management Organization.

London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton said her crews had identified a "number" of those killed, "but we know there will be more".

"How many children died?"

Commander of the Metropolitan Police Stuart Cundy said in a statement that a recovery operation, which was briefly suspended for security reasons, had been resumed and family liaison officers were dealing with 52 families. "The sad reality is that this work will take some time, stretching into many, many weeks", the police commander said at a news conference Friday afternoon.

The Prime Minister, who has announced a public inquiry into the fire, only met emergency services.


Forensic experts said the fire at Grenfell was so hot that could be compared to a cremation - a development that's going to make it hard to identify all the victims. "We can't afford to wait a number of years".

"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.

"There is nothing to suggest at this time that the fire was started deliberately", he added. But attention among experts has focused on a 2016 refurbishment that could have contributed to the fire spreading so quickly.

As they were about to leave, a man holding a poster showing two missing siblings called for William to go over.

Grenfell Tower was being refurbished, and it has been widely reported that the multi-story tower block had no sprinkler system and inadequate safety procedures.

"Their concerns about the building were not responded to and their questions were not answered".

"This is the richest borough in our country treating its citizens in this way", he told the BBC.

Sajid Javid said there would be immediate action following the early conclusions from an investigative report into the blaze which has left at least 17 people dead. "They lived on the 22nd floor, in flat 193".

"We grow more sad and bleak at every second", he said.

Just around the corner from the tower, a makeshift wall of condolences expressed people's grief and defiance.

"Bonds formed in fire are hard to break", read one message.
