Grenfell Tower blaze death toll rises to 79

The type of plastic-filled exterior cladding implicated in the rapid spread of the deadly London tower fire is permitted in Ontario on buildings under seven storeys. "I was in there myself and went all the way to the top floor and it is incredibly hard", he said, before pausing as tears welled up in his eyes.

Cundy was asked to describe the scene inside the building.

Late Sunday, the Metropolitan Police released three photos from inside Grenfell Tower, which showed in close detail how the fire charred the building that once housed up to 600 people in 120 apartments.

Britain has held a moment of silence for the 79 people who are believed to have died in the high-rise fire in West London. Emergency services have been widely praised for their response to the fire, but the local community has accused the government of a slow and inadequate reaction. At a daily briefing with reporters, May's spokeswoman said that on a second visit to the area, during which the prime minister was booed and heckled, May had listened carefully to the experiences of those on the ground.

Hammond said the public inquiry set up by the government following the tragedy would also examine if rules had been broken. However, May did not support a proposal put forward by Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour Party, to seize unoccupied properties to re-house survivors of the fire, the spokeswoman said.

"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.

Queen's Club 2017: Nick Kyrgios out of Aegon Championships with injury
I don't really have time to go home. "I mean, there are worse things in the world than a guy slipping playing tennis". Asked if he would fit for Wimbledon, which starts on July 3, Kyrgios said: "Yeah, 100 percent".

Mr Cundy said the death toll may still change, but not as significantly as it has in recent days. They say they will also use visual elements like tattoos and scars, in the painstaking process.

The firm stresses CEP did not manufacture Reynobond, the cladding material specified by the design and build contracting team - but says it is wrong to point to individual materials or components anyway. The search and recovery operation is likely to take many weeks and some victims may never be identified because of the intensity of the fire, Cundy said.

The cladding fitted to the outside of Grenfell Tower will be the focus of a criminal investigation into the fire suspected of killing more than 58 people, the chancellor said yesterday.

Grief has stricken the community and reached across Britain as families anxiously wait for news on loved ones feared to be inside the tower.

"Normally an inquest will only take place at the end of the criminal investigation, so the idea of an inquiry is important because that can, in some circumstances, happen much more quickly and I think speed is of the essence here".
