Angry Residents Shout "Coward" At Theresa May As She Leaves Kensington Church

Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall became another flashpoint on Friday with protesters storming the building, accusing authorities of ignoring them and of forcing low-income families to live in sub-standard housing. Several dozen police, including mounted officers, were in attendance.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so numerous tower's 600-odd residents.

The death toll from the fire has risen to 30 as of Friday but is still expected to grow.

She said she has ordered daily progress reports on housing for those affected, and vowed the public inquiry into the disaster would be "open and transparent".

Speaking as he left the church with his wife Saadiya, Khan said: "I've spent time with the local community, not just the Christian congregation, but members of all faiths here at the church, grieving, sharing their stories". What emerges in the coming weeks and months will be very hard for many people, including politicians and organisations, but we must get to the truth, Mr Khan continued. 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.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, London mayor Sadiq Khan, Prince William and Queen Elizabeth, 91, have all visited residents from the tower which housed around 600 people. "You have to be prepared to receive people's emotions, and not be so frightened about people", former Conservative cabinet minister Michael Portillo told the BBC.

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 police stressed in a statement that "there is nothing to suggest the fire was started deliberately".

Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Cundy has said that there are still some bodies in Grenfell tower but conditions have been too hazardous to retrieve them. "United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss", she said.

Police say the harrowing search for remains had been paused Friday because of safety concerns at the blacked tower but has resumed.
