58 people presumed dead in London tower fire

Grenfell residents in ‘passionate angry’ exchanges with PM at Downing Street

Sixteen bodies have been taken to a mortuary, and the first victim formally identified was named as Mohammad Alhajali, a 23-year-old Syrian refugee.

The tragedy cast a pall on the Trooping the Color festivities that mark the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.

"No one local authority would be able to cope", he added.

The aluminum cladding - which is widely blamed for spreading the inferno that killed at least 58 early Wednesday morning - was only recently installed on the 24-story tower.

"It was a death trap, and they knew it", one person shouted as demonstrators surged inside the offices of the Kensington and Chelsea council, responsible for managing the social housing block in a working-class enclave of one of Britain's richest districts. "It will also be a subject that the criminal investigation will be looking at", he told BBC television.

George Brewis, 85, who has lived in nearby Aberdeen Tower for 50 years, said: "I felt bad for the people in London, it is so tragic".

"When the truth comes out about this tragedy, we may find that there is blood on the hands of a number of organizations", Lammy said.

Morocco said seven of its nationals were among the dead. Demonstrators gathered outside, protesting about several issues including the fire.

"Everything possible will be done to help them", the prime minister said of the victims in a statement.

Tailored bereavement support for families of the victims, those missing or people affected by the tragedy will also be provided.

Anger is rising against British authorities over safety failings and a widely perceived slow release of information.

Castile protesters target city where officer worked
In the video broadcast by Reynolds, Castile is shown sitting in the driver's seat in a white T-shirt that is soaked in blood. It is a sad state of affairs when this type of criminal conduct is condoned simply because Officer Yanez is a policeman.

The highly flammable siding on London's burned-out Grenfell Tower should never have been there in the first place - because it's illegal on United Kingdom high-rises, a British pol revealed Sunday.

"Four hundred or so people - still majority have not got somewhere decent or safe or secure to stay", he said.

She has also pledged £5 million (S$8.8 million) of support, housing guarantees and help with access to bank accounts and cash.

Survivors of the building claim that cheap materials for the cladding and a lack of maintenance on the building were to blame for the fatal fire.

May and her ministers have said they will do all they can to help those left homeless after the blaze and make sure other high-rise buildings, usually home to poorer people, are checked and safe.

Mr Khan, who said it was "humbling" to attend the service, paid tribute to the community for its resilience but said a feeling of anger remains.

Meanwhile, embattled May found herself in more trouble on Sunday, after her administration walked back a promise to house the survivors of the fire in the same neighborhood.

After a turbulent three months which has seen three militant attacks and now the tower blaze, Queen Elizabeth said "it is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", in a message on her official birthday.

The fire forced residents to flee through black smoke down the single stairwell, jump out of windows or even drop their children from the 120-apartment building.

Resident Miguel Alves, who was just getting home from work and lived on the 13th floor, got in the elevator with a "drunk man" about 1am, an hour after the fire started. He came to Britain in 2014 with his brother.

"Mohammad was a very unbelievable and kind person".
