Grenfell death toll put at 30 - but 69 people are still missing

Pamela Guccione | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:13

Demonstrators from the Grenfell Tower area had gathered to protest the council's failure to act on warnings over fire safety in the building.

"When I left Kensington and Chelsea Social Services to return to Ireland in 2013, there was no social housing in Kensington and Chelsea, and they just moved the problems elsewhere".

The Prime Minister has become the target of anger over her response to the disaster, which has left 58 people presumed dead.

London police said Saturday that the death toll from the inferno at the Grenfell Tower in west London had risen to 58.

The government has promised a full public inquiry.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William visited with people affected by the fire Friday at a makeshift gathering place to counsel friends and relatives.

Those who lost their homes will be rehoused within three weeks, she said.

The statement officially confirmed that a 23-year-old Syrian refugee was the first victim of the huge fire. A team of civil servants has been embedded into the Kensington and Chelsea Council office to bolster relief work. He said he was "heartbroken by the tragic fire and the appalling loss of life".


Smoke was still wafting out of the blackened shell of the Grenfell Tower on Thursday where specialist firefighters and dog search teams faced hazardous conditions as they scoured the wreck, with external cladding still falling from the building.

"I would break the rules more than what I would have done", he said.

They would wear high-visibility clothing so that they could easily be found, dispense advice and ensure the right support was provided, she added.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", the queen said in a statement to mark her official birthday - an occasion that typically does not result in any public comments from the monarch.

During Mrs May's visit, it was announced a £5m (€5.7m) fund would be made available to pay for emergency supplies, food, clothes and other costs.

At least 30 people died after a blaze took hold in the early hours of Wednesday and engulfed the tower block in west London which housed some 600 residents in more than 120 apartments.

The fire in the block in west London burned for hours, and authorities fear that the official death toll of 30 is likely to rise, with numerous dead unlikely ever to be identified.
