London fire protesters storm city hall

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:29

Matthew Parris, a columnist and former Conservative lawmaker, said May's response to the fire had shown a lack of judgment which made her unsuitable to be prime minister. I spoke with people who ran from the fire in only the clothes they were wearing.

Cundy said 16 bodies had so far been recovered from the tower and taken to a mortuary.

He also formally confirmed named the first fire victims as Mohammed al-Haj Ali, a 23-year-old tower resident.

London Fire Brigade requested that parts of the Circle and Hammersmith and City line be closed.

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.

Told there was a need for the public to hear her say something had gone badly wrong and the Government accepted responsibility, Mrs May said: "Something bad has happened".

He said police would consider criminal prosecutions if there is evidence of wrongdoing and that the police investigation would include scrutiny of the renovation project at the tower, which experts believe may have left the building more vulnerable to a catastrophic blaze.

Mrs May, who on Thursday met emergency services at the fire site but did not meet locals, visited residents, volunteers and community leaders at a nearby church yesterday and was rushed away afterwards by police as an angry crowd outside shouted "coward" and "you're not wanted".

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of London on Friday to demand answers over the catastrophic blaze that tore through the Grenfell Tower housing block in west London. "This year, however, it is hard to escape a very somber national mood".

Cundy said there may have been other people in the tower who police are not aware of, and that could increase the death toll. "People have lost their lives, people have had their homes destroyed, they have fled for their lives with absolutely nothing". There is a sense, from conversations with locals, that people have had enough with the VIP visits, even when it is the Queen.


Alongside both police and fire investigations into the blaze, she has promised to set up a public inquiry.

While the political fallout from the tragedy continues, the names of those who died are beginning to emerge.

The first secretary of State in her Cabinet, the equivalent of deputy PM, Damien Green came to her defence.

Mohammad Al-Hajali, 23, a refugee who fled Syria for the United Kingdom in 2014, was identified as another victim.

Alhajali was a civil engineering student at West London University.

Moyra Samuels told the meeting of about 70 people: "These are very uncoordinated [efforts] and my question is, where is the council?" "Some survivors have also complained the government has been painfully slow to find them places to sleep".

Mr Green said a £5m fund announced by the prime minister would be for the immediate needs of victims, adding that "other money may be needed longer term".

The government has promised a full public inquiry.

"Contractor says that he met all the fire safety standards but the questions are going to be, which kind of siding was used and what were the risks?" Three women and three children died. Exterior paneling helped the fire spread.
