Grenfell Tower fire: Number of people missing feared dead rises above 58


Prime Minister Theresa May was greeted by angry crowds shouting "coward" after she promised support for victims of a fire in a London tower block that claimed at least 30 lives.

The type of cladding used on the exterior walls of the tower block was not graded fire-resistant and its use is restricted in the US, British media reported yesterday.

Insulating materials of the type blamed for the spread of the Grenfell fire are made here and are widely used.

Police said at least 58 people have died or are presumed dead as a result of the Grenfell Tower fire on Wednesday. Like many other residents she has spent the days following the fire living in temporary shelters with minimal sleep, printing and distributing posters wherever she can.

"There are two separate questions; one is are our regulations correct, do they permit the right kind of materials and ban the wrong kind of materials".

The U.S. bans this type of cladding with a flammable plastic inner layer on buildings over 12 metres or roughly four storeys.

Sixteen bodies have been taken to the mortuary after flames tore through the 1970s tower block - while 14 others have been recovered from the building.

Britain's trade minister says the exterior paneling used on the exterior of the London high-rise, in which dozens were killed in a fire, appears to have violated building rules.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, London mayor Sadiq Khan, Prince William and Queen Elizabeth, 91, have all visited the local area and anger has been growing in the community.

Lammy said that "the prime minister needs to act immediately to ensure that all evidence is protected so that everyone culpable for what happened at Grenfell Tower is held to account and feels the full force of the law".

"The conditions within Grenfell Tower are particularly hazardous".

After her flawed decision to call a snap general election saw the Conservatives lose their narrow majority earlier this month, May has now come under fire for her lacklustre response to the Grenfell Tower fire disaster.

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

"I have friends in the tower and they are not telling us anything", said Salwa Buamani, 25, who took part in the peaceful protest outside with her three-year-old niece. It is going to take a period of time for our specialists, both from the police and from the London Fire Brigade, to fully search that building to make sure we locate and recover everybody that has sadly perished in that fire.
