Still in Critical Condition After London Fire

London protests held as anger mounts over Grenfell fire UK government scrambles to limit fallout from London fire

Eoghan Murphy's call came in response to the fire at London's Grenfell Tower earlier this week in which 30 people have been confirmed dead (the death toll is expected to rise significantly).

While the blaze has prompted an outpouring of generosity, with many people donating provisions and clothes, it has also unleashed rage at the authorities as the charred tower was cast as a deadly symbol of a deeply divided society.

Mrs May has pledged a £5 million support package for the victims, which included a promise to rehouse them within three weeks.

He said police will release images and video from inside the tower tomorrow, pending the approval of Grenfell families. Some have even referred to it as her Hurricane Katrina moment.

"People raised these concerns, people were expressing issues regarding the safety and unsafe living conditions", says Lancaster West Residents Association chairwoman Olesea Matcovschi.

"Our focus has been on those that we know were in there that we've been told were in Grenfell Tower, however there may be other people who were in there on the night that others were not aware were there".

"It has been decided today that the public inquiry will report back to me personally".

"I thought they took him outside with me".


In the days after the tragedy occurred, attention has focused on the the panels that were fitted to the outside of the tower in 2011, that have been labelled flammable by German and United States authorities and banned from use on high rise buildings.

Later that afternoon, demonstrators stormed the offices of Kensington and Chelsea Council over its handling of the crisis amid concerns that earlier renovation work was linked to the rapid spread of the blaze. This year, however, it is very hard to escape a very sombre national mood. "In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of awful tragedies".

Such a direct message from the monarch is rare and indicates the extent of the turmoil in Britain. They feel the Government and local council haven't done enough to help them in the aftermath of this horrific incident, or to provide answers to their increasingly urgent questions.

It is the same church where the Prime Minister met a group of victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders on Friday, as an angry crowd outside directed shouts of "coward" and "shame on you" towards her.

Britain's trade minister says the exterior paneling used on the exterior of the London high-rise, in which dozens were killed in a fire, appears to have violated building rules.

For the Prime Minister, it has added to her problems, following a failed election gamble and an increasingly weak grip on her party.

"Clearly it's quite unprecedented for 16 very ordinary people, who this time last week were walking their dogs or talking to each other in the streets around here and north Kensington, actually to be in 10 Downing Street talking face-to-face with the prime minister", he said.
