Presumed Death Toll Nearly Doubles After London Fire

"Somehow or other it seems to be beyond the wit of the public services to deal with a crisis facing a relatively small number of people in a country of 65 million". He gave love to everyone.

His family said that Alhajali "came to the United Kingdom because he had ambitions and aims for his life and for his family". Our whole family will miss Mohammad dearly and he will never be forgotten.

It said: "We are devastated by this tragedy".

One firefighter, in his black protective suit with FIRE emblazoned in yellow on the back, embraced a distraught woman who had photos of a missing person printed on her top.

Cundy said police would consider criminal prosecutions if there is evidence of wrongdoing and the police investigation would include scrutiny of the renovation project.

Investigators believe the fire started at around 1 a.m. local time Wednesday on the fourth floor of the 24-story Grenfell Tower. Four minutes after the fire was visible, the fire brigade was called and the first engine arrived within six minutes.

The officer also confirmed that the actual total lives lost in the incident must be greater than what they have right now. The exact cause of the fire is still unknown.

The presumed death toll from the London tower block inferno jumped to 58 on Saturday as embattled Prime Minister Theresa May, accused of misreading the national mood over the tragedy, met survivors desperately seeking answers.

The fire forced residents to flee through black smoke down the single stairwell, jump out of windows or even drop their children from the building. Some 600 people were living in the tower's 120 apartments.

The 23-year-old Alhajali is the only victim of the Grenfell Tower fire to be officially named as the hard process of identifying human remains continues.

Philip Hammond said the cladding used on the tower block was banned. "I really hope it won't, but it may increase", he said.

He then took aim at those who backed the Leave campaign. "But it would also be deeply distressing for families for us to release wrong information", he added.

"She's a coward and needs to leave", Tilly Howard, a protester told the Guardian newspaper.

Cundy said the search was paused over safety concerns Friday, but has since resumed.

The meeting happened as a wide-ranging demonstration took place outside, protesting about several issues including the Grenfell Tower fire.

"This is an absolutely bad fire that took place", May said. It may take longer than that. We know that there are still bodies of those who died inside the building and we want to return those people to their families as soon as we possibly can.

Following a meeting of the Grenfell Tower task-force on Saturday, London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced that a "London-wide local authority recovery operation" was established Friday in response to the devastating fire.

Britain's Press Association says around 70 people are missing.

Mrs May has pledged a £5 million support package for the victims, which included a promise to rehouse them within three weeks.

However, public anger has swollen over the disaster, with furious residents heckling May and storming the local authority headquarters on Friday.

"We are not stupid, we're aware people are dead".

The prime minister has faced criticism for not speaking to those affected immediately after the fire.

She also noted that an emergency fund of more than $6 million has begun to be "distributed on the ground so people can buy clothes, food and other essentials".

Previous estimates have stepped into triple figures as firefighters search the gutted building flat-by-flat.
