British police release footage showing devastation inside London's Grenfell tower

Grenfell Tower victims to get £5,500 from emergency fund Theresa May says

"During recent visits in Manchester and London, I have been profoundly struck by the immediate inclination of people throughout the country to offer comfort and support to those in desperate need", the queen said in a statement.

"We as the police, investigate criminal offences - I am not sitting here and saying there are criminal offences that have been committed, that's why you do an investigation, to establish it", he said.

But she sidestepped questions over whether she had failed to judge the public mood.

Police have been struggling to come up with an authoritative list of who was in the building when the fire started, making it hard to determine how many had died.

Ronnie King, the UK's former chief fire officer, told Al Jazeera: "I wouldn't wish to denigrate those who installed the cladding because - whatever the cladding was - it did not have to be fire resistant under the building regulations", said King.

"There is considerable damage within Grenfell Tower", he said.

These were hard conversations with a tight-knit community that is understandably distraught, frustrated and increasingly angry.

"The residents of Grenfell Tower, families who have lost loved ones, and the emergency services who have been working so hard to help them have been through some of the most harrowing and traumatic experiences imaginable", Mrs May said.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", Elizabeth, the world's oldest and longest-reigning monarch, said in a message on her official birthday.

The London Evening Standard reported that hundreds of activists marched to the town hall and gathered outside the building on Friday chanting: "We want justice".

Fire safety experts believe that cladding put on the building's exterior during a renovation previous year was less fire retardant, which may have fueled the blaze.

The tragedy has provoked a big response from nearby communities that have donated food and shelter to the victims.

The footage comes as it emerges survivors of the tragedy have been given just £10 a day to live off, despite more than £3 million in donations to relief funds. British officials have ordered a review of other buildings that have had similar renovations. Numerous displaced are living in churches and community centers. There is ample food and water, but very little privacy or proper bedding.

"What we are doing is putting in place the support that will help them".

"It will go to establish the answers of what happened in the fire and how it spread; it will look at the building itself; it will look at the refurbishment as well".

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