Theresa May offers support package for London fire victims

UK government scrambles to limit fallout from London fire Theresa May offers support package for London fire victims

Mrs May was hustled away under heavy police guard from a meeting with residents on Friday as protesters shouted "Shame on you" and hundreds stormed a local town hall calling for justice.

By contrast, Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's response to the deadly blaze was suggest the "requisitioning" some of the expensive empty homes of the Kensington elite to ensure that displaced residents have shelter.

The figure of 58 are those that are missing and I have to assume are dead. Thirty of the victims are confirmed dead.

The death toll from the fire has risen to 30 as of Friday but is still expected to grow.

The Council says it will cooperate "in full" with the government's inquiry. Community groups have said that warnings about poor fire safety have always been ignored, and that in the aftermath of the disaster, officials failed to immediately take care of those affected.

Local councils will also carry out safety checks on buildings similar to the Grenfell Tower, the prime minister said.

Opponents said Mrs May's handling of the fire has thrust her position further into doubt.

The statement came after May met volunteers and some of the people made homeless by the fire.


Residents caught up in the fire have previously condemned the relief effort as "absolute chaos". "Phone lines will have more staff". "How did they allow this tragedy to happen when it could have easily been avoided?" She said after the meeting that there have been "huge frustrations" in the community as people tried to get information.

"Wallowing in the wash of a general election that stripped our prime minister of her authority on the very eve of European Union negotiations, neither common sense nor the evidence suggest she can re-establish public confidence", Matthew Parris wrote.

She has told Councils to complete urgent safety checks on similar tower blocks.

The move came as the official response to the crisis drew fresh condemnation from residents and London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Police were called to the building and formed a barrier to control the situation.

The five million pounds are to be used to cover emergency supplies, funeral costs and loss of possessions, Efe news reported.

He promised an exhaustive investigation into the fire which would include scrutiny of the renovation works on the block which some experts believe may have left the building more vulnerable to the catastrophic blaze.
