At least 58 presumed dead in London Grenfell fire

The prime minister was pictured through a long lens camera being briefed by senior figures of the emergency services visiting the site but not meeting any of the residents.

But, 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.

People write tributes on a wall near to the Grenfell Tower block in Kensington, west London, yesterday following the June 14 fire at the residential building.

"Whilst I sincerely hope that our work over the coming days means that we able to say that less people are confirmed as having died, I also have to consider the sad reality that this may rise", said Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy.

There are 16 bodies now in a London morgue, Cundy said, and the remaining victims are missing and presumed dead.

Angry protesters chanting "We want justice" stormed their way into the Kensington and Chelsea town hall on Friday.

May chaired a government task force on the disaster before meeting survivors.

She also pledged 5 million pounds ($6.39 million) of support, housing guarantees and help with access to bank accounts and cash.

Green said the government would pay for residents' legal representation at the inquiry and reiterated May's promise to rehouse those displaced by the fire within three weeks as close as possible to home.

He said: "I understand - I really do understand - the frustration of so many about not knowing the scale of the tragedy that is unfolding behind us". That is what a prime minister should do and that is what she has done.

"We need to make sure that actually happens", she said.

Investigators are now trying to establish the cause of the fire and how it spread so quickly through the block.

On Friday evening, May was interviewed by Emily Maitlis on the BBC programme "Newsnight" where she sidestepped questions over whether she misread the public mood and anger over the Grenfell fire as well as what her personal response is - leading to more criticism of being called "robotic" and "cold".

She then went to visit victims in the church where Corbyn was pictured hugging crying victims.

On Saturday, more than 1,000 people gathered near May's Downing Street office to protest against her plan to form a government with the support of a socially conservative Northern Irish party.

One banner showed a drawing of May with the words "Shame" and "Disgrace".

More than 70 people reportedly remain unaccounted for and the area surrounding the tower has been plastered by distraught relatives with pictures of the missing, from grandparents to young children.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", Elizabeth said in a message on her official birthday.

"As recent awful events in London and Manchester have brought to light, Blue Light workers do an extremely challenging job, encountering hard and traumatic situations", he said.

"United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss".

Such a direct message from the monarch is rare and indicates the extent of the turmoil in Britain.

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 awful has happened".
