London fire: Theresa May pledges $6.4 million for survivors

Protesters chanting "we want justice" stormed a local town hall in London this afternoon after a deadly fire at a block of flats killed at least 30 people, Reuters reporters at the scene said.

Residents feel they have not been listened to after claiming to have made repeated warnings about the fire risk of Grenfell Tower.

A couple of miles away in west London, several hundred protesters stormed Kensington and Chelsea Council Town Hall.

Numerous locals who live near the tower and watched horrific scenes unfold before them think that the death toll will rise. The Guardian newspaper reported Friday that contractors installed a cheaper, less flame-resistant type of paneling in the renovation that ended in May 2016.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said people were frustrated by the lack of information about the missing and the dead as well as a lack of coordination between support services.

Police have warned some of the victims may never be identified due to the state of the remains.

Fire engulfed the social housing block, where as many as 600 people lived in more than 120 apartments.

Although police did not speculate on the eventual number of fatalities, local community sources say at least 70 from Grenfell Tower are still missing, including entire families.

The police stressed in a statement that "there is nothing to suggest the fire was started deliberately". He asked anyone who was in the tower and survived to contact police immediately.


The firm behind the work said the project met all required building regulations.

Mrs May, criticised in the first few days after the blaze for failing to meet the victims, said the public inquiry looking into the tragedy will report directly to her.

One woman wept saying it was because the Prime Minister declined to speak to anyone outside the meeting which lasted less than hour.

Theresa May held a meeting in Downing Street the next day with residents she had spoken to at the church.

Nick Paget-Brown, the Conservative leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council, insisted there had been an "effective and coordinated" response to the blaze.

The 23-year-old Alhajali is the only victim of the Grenfell Tower fire to be officially named. They have have not been seen since the fire.

Police said they are using the INTERPOL Disaster Victim Identification Standards to identify the deceased. This relies on dental records, fingerprints and DNA when possible and also features like tattoos or scars. Grenfell Tower residents are among Britain's poorest families.

"It's come over very strongly how good the community has been to help", the queen said. London has a chronic housing shortage even in the best of times, and people fear being forced out of the city.

Dozens of demonstrators holding up placards and appeal posters shouted "we want an inquest" and "we want justice" as they entered the building. She has also launching a public inquiry into the fire, demanding that Londoners "deserve answers". British officials have ordered a review of other buildings that have had similar renovations.

'This was a huge, sudden disaster, a complete tragedy and no one borough alone would be able to deal with the scale of it'.
