Minute's silence as police confirm 79 died in Grenfell fire

On Monday, police confirmed at least 79 people are dead or presumed dead after a fire ravaged a 24-story apartment building in west London last week. "And once it's safe, they are going to go into the building", he said while trying to pacify the crowd".

London police late Sunday released photographs of the devastation inside the 120-unit building to show the public and frustrated family members why the search for victims is taking so long.

The announcement came ahead of a minute's silence to be held at 11am across all Government buildings to remember the people who lost their lives and all those affected by the fire in north Kensington last week.

Khan said the fire was a "national tragedy with national consequences", adding: "Those who mock health and safety, regulations and red tape need to take a hard look at the consequences of cutting these and ask themselves whether Grenfell Tower is a price worth paying".

British Prime Minister Theresa May promised victims of a London fire that left at least 30 dead that a five-million-pound ($6.5 million) support package would be created, the media reported.

Earlier this week, May was confronted by protesters furious over her handling of the Grenfell Tower disaster.

"This is an incredible distressing time for families and they have my commitment that we will do this as quickly as we possibly can", he said. People applauded as firefighters walked past.

Public anger was mounting as residents and neighbors demanded answers for how the blaze spread so quickly amid reports that contractors installed a cheaper, less flame-resistant type of exterior paneling in a renovation of Grenfell Tower that ended in May 2016.

Two British ministers said Sunday that the new exterior cladding used in a renovation on Grenfell Tower may have been banned under United Kingdom building regulations.

"If I identify... an issue that is a risk to public safety, we will be sharing that immediately with the relevant authorities", he added.

"I would like to reassure everybody that we will be looking at all criminal offences that might have been committed by any individual or any organisation".

Several hundred people have rallied at a demonstration demanding "justice" for the victims.

"Frankly, the support on the ground for families who needed help or basic information in the initial hours after this appalling disaster was not good enough", May said Saturday.
