Brits Are Upset With The Prime Minister's Response To The London Fire

But the authority's latest statement said: "While we will try do our utmost to ensure those affected remain in or near the borough, given the number of households involved, it is possible the council will have to explore housing options that may become available in other parts of the capital".

Eoghan Murphy's call came in response to the fire at London's Grenfell Tower earlier this week in which 30 people have been confirmed dead (the death toll is expected to rise significantly). Authorities have not yet issued a figure and have said they genuinely don't know how many people might have died.

"We are here today because you must look at that building with tears streaming down your face", one woman said as they neared the foot of the tower.

Some footage from inside the tower may be released tomorrow to show the difficulties fire crews are facing, Cundy said at the press conference.

The management organization said it was aware of the complaints made by residents, but that it was "too early to speculate what caused the fire and contributed to its spread".

"The response of the emergency services, National Health Service and the community has been heroic", the prime minister said in a statement.

Many residents are still unaccounted for, and police said some remains may never be identified.

Hundreds of people marched from Kensington town hall toward the gutted tower on Friday evening, some brandishing Socialist Worker Party placards emblazoned with slogans including "Defy Tory Rule" and "no justice, no peace".

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.




"The conditions within Grenfell Tower are particularly hazardous".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn welcomed the inquiry in a letter to May but said that the cash set aside in the fund falls short of what's needed.

However, as many have pointed out, 91-year-old Queen Elizabeth II managed to visit with some of the people affected overnight.

London's fire department says that the reason for the subway closure near the high-rise fire disaster is because of a "short-term risk of some debris falling onto the tracks".

The tragedy has provoked a huge response from nearby communities.

Three appeals on the JustGiving site have helped to raise the 3 million pounds, and London's Evening Standard newspaper has launched a separate appeal that has raised at least 1.5 million pounds ($1.9 million) by Saturday morning. The Police has announced that the fifty-eight people who are still missing after the Grenfell Tower fire, are being presumed dead.

"All I can say is to my certain knowledge the council, councillors, volunteers, community groups, officers of the council, have been present in North Kensington since very soon after they were notified that the fire had started". "Put to the test, the United Kingdom has been resolute in the face of adversity".

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", Elizabeth said in a message on her official birthday.

May on Friday visited some of the rescued undergoing treatment in Kensington and Chelsea Hospital.
