Members of the emergency services work inside burnt out remains of the Grenfell apartment tower in North Kensington, London, Britain, June 18, 2017.

The borough said Friday that all residents of Grenfell Tower who had asked for help had been housed in hotels and that it was looking for interim accommodation for those people and others living nearby who could not return home.

"No service between Edgware Road and Hammersmith due to the recent fire in the Latimer Road area", said a tweet on the account of the Circle Line.

Some 58 people are now feared dead in the Grenfell Tower fire in west London, according to British police.

"But, 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".

He said that feeling of being ignored is a source of much "deep frustration", and told how people have been left feeling "that decisions are taken about their lives and their homes that they are not party to".

Cundy added that it will take weeks or longer to recover and identify all the dead in the housing block that was devastated.

So far 30 people are confirmed dead but police said this weekend that based on reports from the public the number now stood at 58 and that this could rise.

A senior United Kingdom government minister said Sunday that he believed the cladding apparently used in a recent refurbishment of the London high-rise devastated by a blaze is banned in Britain for buildings above a certain height.

While the blaze has prompted an outpouring of generosity, with many people donating provisions and clothes, it has also unleashed rage at the authorities as the charred tower was cast as a deadly symbol of a deeply divided society. Police said 19 injured in the fire remain hospitalized, including 10 who were in critical condition.

A solemn Queen Elizabeth II marked a minute of silence for victims of the London high-rise inferno at the start of a procession Saturday to mark her official birthday.

On Friday, angry protesters chanting "We want justice" stormed their way into the Kensington and Chelsea town hall to try to confront the leaders of the local council.

Engineering experts and fire safety specialists believe the building's exterior cladding may have quickly fueled the blaze, overwhelming fire protection devices. British officials have ordered a review of other buildings that have had similar renovations. There is ample food and water but very little privacy or proper bedding, and with the tower destroyed, no one knows where they will be relocated or for how long.

Residents complained two years ago about the refurbishment of the building being done "using cheap materials" and workmanship that "cut corners", they told The Independent.
