Using drones and sniffer dogs, firefighters continued to search the burned-out housing block that looms over the low-income community in west London.

"Frankly, the support on the ground for families who needed help or basic information in the initial hours after this appalling disaster was not good enough", she said. More than 3 million pounds ($3.8 million) have been raised for the victims, and the British government has announced a 5 million-pound ($6.3 million) emergency fund.

She said: "I feel the lack of humility, compassion, I feel there is no heart from the TMO".

"I have heard the concerns and I have ordered immediate action across the board to help victims' relatives and the survivors", May said.

Survivors and families of the victims are demanding answers in light of reports that external panelling put up during a recent renovation contributed to the flames' rapid spread.

When pressed on Theresa May's response to the fire, which has been criticised after she did not face the public during visits to the Grenfell site, Mr Green insisted she was as "distraught as anyone". Hana Wahabi said she begged her brother, Abdulaziz Wahabi, to leave but he told her "there was too much smoke". "The people are waking up to the right-wing, mainstream media and May just doesn't get the public mood".

Previously, the Metropolitan Police had confirmed 30 people had been killed in the inferno; the announcement Saturday almost doubles that number.

"Sadly at this time, there are 58 people who we have been told were in Grenfell Tower on the night that are missing and therefore sadly I have to assume that they are dead", Commander Stuart Cundy told reporters on Saturday, adding that the figure could change. "It might be that some of those are safe and well but for whatever reason have not reached (out) to let us know". They deserve justice. We demand answers. He says it will take weeks or longer to recover and identify all the dead at the building.

London Police have launched an investigation to determine whether any crimes contributed to the blaze. Police say 24 injured people remain at the hospital.

"Mohammed undertook a unsafe journey to flee war and death in Syria, only to meet it here in the United Kingdom, in his own home", the Syrian Solidarity Campaign said in a statement.

"It is human nature for most of us - if we know there's a fire, start moving and get out", said Robert Solomon of the National Fire Protection Association, a USA -based organization that studies fire safety globally.

In a blog post written previous year, the Grenfell Action Group warned of "dangerous living conditions" in the tower.

CTMO, the Kensington and Chelsea Management Organization, has managed the building on behalf of local public authorities who own it.

He said councils are also working closely with tenants to review and offer fire safety advice.

She was accompanied by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

A solemn Queen Elizabeth II marked a minute of silence for victims of the London high-rise inferno at the start of a procession Saturday to mark her official birthday.
