"She moved quickly to call a public inquiry into the fire and has said she will green light whatever is necessary", he says.

Protesters ran into the town hall after Mr Almansur read the council's statement to the crowd.

Police have confirmed that at least 30 people were killed in the fire, and the death toll might increase.

The Sun newspaper said 65 people are now feared dead or missing in the fire.

I helped them down. Police were seen on stand-by not far away from the protesters.

The protesters barged their way through an automatic door at and sought to gain entry to an upper floor. Bloomberg reported that around 100 also people gathered outside the council building at Kensington to demand "justice".

But the Grenfell Tower fire could be her final undoing. The package includes a guarantee to rehouse people as close as practically possible to where they previously lived - either in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea or in neighboring boroughs.

While the deadly blaze at the Grenfell Tower in north Kensington has prompted an outpouring of generosity, it has also unleashed fury at the authorities as the charred tower was cast as a deadly symbol of a divided society.

"We are not here to trouble people".

The aluminium cladding, called Reynobond, is banned for buildings higher than 12m in the USA, far lower than the 24-storey Grenfell Tower that was consumed by the roaring blaze, according to a salesman for the company that manufactures it. Exterior cladding that was added during a recent refurbishment might have played a part, local residents have said.

But accusations of a slow official response have heaped pressure on the premier, whose Conservative government remains in limbo after losing its parliamentary majority in last week's election.

"I called him and said: "Where are you?', I said: 'Where are you?' He said: 'I'm in the flat.' I said: 'Why you didn't come?"

London has a chronic housing shortage even in the best of times, and those left homeless by the fire - already angry over what they see as government inequity and incompetence - fear being forced out of the British capital.

The queen spoke to residents and members of the emergency services near the gutted Grenfell Tower on Friday morning, while May's office said she would visit victims in hospital.

Protesters are descending on Downing Street chanting "May out" as she becomes the figurehead for much of the outrages.

"She wanted an entirely controlled situation in which she didn't use her humanity", former cabinet minister Michael Portillo told the BBC.

A firefighter who heard children's screams as he battled the Grenfell Tower blaze has described the fire as "like a warzone".

"In this country, in this century, for this kind of thing to happen it is horrific and we can not allow anything like this to ever happen again".

However, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who was London mayor until previous year, took to Facebook to attack opposition Labour politicians for "political game playing". Her grandson Prince William accompanied her and told a volunteer, "That's one of the most awful things I have ever seen".

Omnis Exteriors, a Worcester-based company specialising in ACM panelling, said it had been asked to supply Reynobond PE to Harley Facades, the contractor carrying out the cladding renovation of the west London tower block, The Guardian reported. He also cautioned there may have been people in the tower that police are not aware of, which would add to the death toll.
