Theresa May offers support package for London fire victims

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy told The Associated Press that 24 people were being treated in hospitals, including 12 in critical condition. What emerges in the coming weeks and months will be very hard for many people, including politicians and organisations, but we must get to the truth.

At least 30 people have been confirmed as dead so far after a fire broke out in the the 24-storey tower block in north Kensington in the early hours of Wednesday June 14.

"The package of support I'm announcing today is to give the victims the immediate support they need to care for themselves and for loved ones".

According to the Guardian, local residents became frustrated after May swiftly departed after her visit St Clement's church on Friday, leading to cries of "shame on you" and "coward" from a large crowd that had assembled to hear her speak. Queen Elizabeth, London mayor Sadiq Khan and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn have all met the residents.

Police have also warned that the death toll could rise as the recovery operation continues. "You have to be prepared to receive people's emotions, and not be so frightened about people", former Conservative cabinet minister Michael Portillo told the BBC.

It has since emerged that the U.S. had banned the type of cladding thought to have been used on Grenfell Tower.

Other measures outlined by Prime Minister Theresa May following a meeting with residents at Downing Street on Saturday, included more staff covering phone lines and ground staff wearing high-visibility clothing so they could be easily found.

Hundreds of people who escaped the flames have lost their homes and all of their belongings, but Catholic parishes in the surrounding area have quickly begun receiving donations of food, clothes and water to be distributed.

"That's one of the most awful things I have ever seen", Prince William said of the tower's blackened shell.

A second protest took place later in central London.

He said a police investigation by specialist detectives would "establish the facts to provide, as best we possible, answers for those so deeply and tragically affected by the awful fire at Grenfell Tower". "United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favor, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss".

Police say the harrowing search for remains had been paused Friday because of safety concerns at the blacked tower but has resumed.
