London tower fire: 58 people missing presumed dead, say police

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:29

Mrs May, already under pressure after a botched snap election, is facing widespread criticism for her response to the blaze. She later appeared on TV to announce a public inquiry into the blaze.

An Irishman was among those killed in the tragedy, a London-based lawyer claimed.

However, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson took to Facebook to attack Labour politicians for "political game playing", defending his record regarding the fire service as mayor of London between 2008-2016.

He said: "I absolutely understand the frustration of why figures haven't been released earlier. We will continue to look at what more needs to be done".

The Standard reported about 350 people had arrived at the protest by 5 p.m. local time, among them was pop singer Lily Allen who was brought up in the area.

He said police had started a criminal investigation but there was nothing to suggest "that the fire had been started deliberately".

The Government has ordered a review of fire safety at 4,000 older tower blocks fearing 100,000 could be at risk.

The protesters made their way through an automatic door at the local Kensington and Chelsea town hall.

He said: "The investigation is a police investigation".


Speaking to the growing crowd, Mr Mansour called on senior council leaders to "come out" of the building to respond to a list of demands submitted by the Radical Housing Network.

Local authorities have warned that the death toll is certain to rise and that some of the victims may never be identified.

It issued a statement before the protest to try to address the concerns of residents.

The block, which housed some 600 people in about 120 apartments, is in a low-rent housing estate next to one of the most affluent areas of Britain.

Corbyn met with members of the public and was pictured hugging tearful relatives of victims near the charred building.

"I'm like, God help these people", said Choucair, 42, who had lived with her family in the 24-storey Grenfell Tower for just over a year.

Some desperate residents pleaded to speak to the queen and her grandson about their plight and the fate of missing children as they left the site, with William promising he would return.

One woman outside the town hall told the BBC that the council's response to the emergency had been "chaotic".

He added: "We would like the chief executive of the council to make public commitments on what the council is going to do for the victims of this borough, and for all the other buildings in the borough that could stand the same fate at Grenfell Towers". May has even been criticised from within her own Conservative Party for not doing so.
