58 people in London apartment are missing and presumed dead in fire

58 people in London apartment are missing and presumed dead in fire

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy has addressed media in west London this afternoon and while he didn't confirm an updated death toll, which now stands at 30, he said 58 missing people were likely dead.

East Sussex-based Harley Facades Ltd fitted the panels at Grenfell as part of the £8.6 million partial refurbishment which was completed under lead contractor Rydon last summer.

The remains of Grenfell Tower stand in London on Saturday.

"We've worked tirelessly to establish how many people we believe were in Grenfell Tower on the night and at this point in time we are unable to say", he said. The building was gutted in a blaze early Wednesday morning that has also left dozens missing and hundreds of others homeless.

British authorities are launching a criminal investigation into the London apartment building fire - as the death toll from the blaze has almost doubled, to 30.

"She should have been there with the residents".

The type of cladding used on the exterior walls of the tower block was not graded fire-resistant and its use is restricted in the US, British media reported yesterday.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William visited an aid distribution site Friday for the tower's residents and met with volunteers.

Another, larger protest also marched through west London, where hundreds of people headed to the burned-out building tower.

May was criticised for avoiding locals when she visited the burnt-out shell of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower on Thursday, but faced cries of "shame on you" and "coward" when she returned the following day.

The queen's official birthday is marked in June when the weather is often nicer than in April, the actual month of her birth.

London fire commissioner Dany Cotton said it would be a "miracle" if any survivors were found alive, adding there were "unknown numbers of people" still inside the building.

Organisers estimated at least 1,400 people were at in the protest in Westminster.

NHS England says the injured are being treated in four London hospitals.

More than 3 million pounds ($3.8 million) has been raised for victims of the London high-rise fire that has killed at least 30 people and left dozens homeless.

The tragedy has provoked a very big response from nearby communities that have donated food and shelter to the victims.

After meeting with Grenfell survivors on Friday, May announced a 5 million pound ($6.4 million) fund to help them and expressed sorrow for their plight.

Protesters angry at the response from Theresa May's Government to the Grenfell Tower fire disaster have descended on Whitehall, shouting: "May must go".

The protesters barged their way through an automatic door at Kensington and Chelsea council town hall and sought to gain entry to an upper floor.

Friday's rally demanding justice for the victims symbolised the outrage felt across the entire country and a determination that more lives should not be lost as a result of callous indifference.

"This should not be happening in the United Kingdom, this should never happen".

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", the queen said in a statement to mark her official birthday - an occasion that typically does not result in any public comments from the monarch.

"We want it to be able to have interim reports as well", he added. 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.

The firm's managing director, John Cowley, said: "It is critical to consider the whole system, including insulation materials, fire barriers, fixings and railings and you also need to look at the overall design and quality of installation".
