Protesters storm town hall as anger grows over London fire

Scotland Yard has launched a criminal investigation into the Grenfell Tower blaze amid calls from British MPs for

"We're all desperately sad, we're all angry, but of course none of us as angry as those who were directly affected".

THE THAI EMBASSY in London is attempting to contact a Thai family who were living in the fire-ravaged Grenfell Tower block in west London.

This number is likely to rise further, Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy has warned.

There was a large police presence as Mrs May met a group of victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders at St Clement's Church close to the scene of the horrific blaze on Friday afternoon.

Newly-appointed Indian-origin housing minister in the Department for Communities and Local Government, Alok Sharma, said, "Every single family will be rehoused in the local area".

Protesters stand in the lobby of Kensington town hall in west London, the headquarters of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, demanding answers over the Grenfell Tower fire, in London, Friday June 16, 2017.

Amongst the dead was artist Khadija Saye, whose photography is now being exhibited at the Vienna Biennale. What are you going to do about it? During the video, Rania is seen leading people in the smoke-filled corridor into her apartment for shelter to ensure their safety.

Nichols applauded the emergency response team, which included over 250 firefighters and more than 100 ambulance medics.

"I do sense the anger", Leadsom said.

The local Grenfell Action Group had claimed, before and during a major 10-million-pound refurbishment of Grenfell Tower past year, that the block constituted a fire risk and residents had warned that access to the site for emergency vehicles was "severely restricted".

May has faced criticism for not meeting with survivors during her first visit to the site after the blaze, the wire service reports.

"Our focus has been on those that we know were in Grenfell Tower". The Times said the recently refurbished tower block had been fitted with cladding that wasn't fireproof, and that for less than £5000 pounds (NZ$8800), a fire-resistant version could have been used instead.

The Syria Solidarity Campaign said Alhajali, a civil engineering student, had been in a flat on the 14th floor when the fire broke out, and had spent two hours on the phone to a friend in Syria.

Relatives of those missing after a high-rise tower blaze in London posted pictures of their loved ones Friday in the desperate hope of news, as grief following the tragedy has turned to outrage at authorities accused of being lax in meeting building standards.
