London fire: 58 presumed dead, say police

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:31

Police barred their way and scuffles broke out, a Reuters reporter said. Some 70 residents remain unaccounted for.

However, experts have warned that under-investment in social housing has left many buildings unsafe.

Mounted officers have also been spotted close to the scene on stand-by.

While the deadly blaze at the Grenfell Tower in north Kensington has prompted an outpouring of generosity, it has also unleashed fury at the authorities as the charred tower was cast as a deadly symbol of a divided society.

Located in the wealthy Kensington neighbourhood, the 24-storey public housing building and its 600 residents stood in stark contrast to the world around them.

On Saturday, May met for two hours with 15 survivors and community leaders at her official residence at 10 Downing Street in London.

"[This aims] to give the victims the immediate support they need to care for themselves and for loved ones", Ms May said.

The mayor for London has demanded for better help from the government in an open letter published on Twitter, adding that other people living in tower blocks were "terrified".

Mrs May, already under pressure after a botched snap election, is facing widespread criticism for her response to the blaze.


In a television interview Friday, she sidestepped questions over whether she had misread the public mood. "He didn't come with a bunch of police.no one even saw her".

"She wanted an entirely controlled situation in which she didn't use her humanity", former cabinet minister Michael Portillo told the BBC.

Grenfell Tower burned down on Wednesday, June 14. "How did they allow this tragedy to happen when it could have easily been avoided?"

The queen is meeting with volunteers Friday.

"There's one woman this morning and her child, they have been moved three times since Wednesday into different accommodation". Residents want answers on why the fire spread so quickly, trapping numerous estimated 600 residents.

Writing in the Observer, Sadiq Khan said it may well be the "defining outcome of this tragedy that the worst mistakes" of that era become a thing of the past.

Releasing a tranche of footage showing the aftermath of the blaze, Mr Cundy said: "Today, police teams continue their support to families, and make enquiries to cross check the number of those missing".

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