Grief turns to anger in neighbourhood near tower fire

The tower housed some 600 people in 120 apartments.

In addition, London Mayor Sadiq Khan called for an interim report on the fire to be published this summer.

"Understandably the residents are angry and concerned and have genuine questions that demand answers", he said.

Khan says he believes their grief was being exacerbated by the lack of information.

"Those 70s buildings, many of them should be demolished".

The royals felt the need to start as they mean to go on in their new London neighborhood and immediately reached out to see what they could do to help victims of the fire in the London apartment building.

Prime Minister Theresa May said there would be an investigation into the cause of the "appalling tragedy", once the last bodies had been recovered.

A statement from Kensington Palace recognized the nearly unprecedented numbers of people in need of urgent assistance after the fire ravaged and completely destroyed the 24-story building.

Some 200 people marched near Notting Hill Gate tube station on Friday, demanding action from local councilors tasked with housing people following the disaster.

Scuffles broke out Friday near the Kensington and Chelsea town hall offices as demonstrators chanting "We want justice!" surged toward the doors. Protesters are anxious that councilors will dispatch homeless residents far from their communities.

As London responds, this situation raises an important question: How many other public housing estates across the city have similarly unsafe conditions, with obvious correctable issues that could be addressed to make them much safer?

Intercede Group plc (IGP) Stock Rating Reaffirmed by FinnCap
The stock of Anglo Pacific Group plc (LON:APF) earned "Speculative Buy" rating by Beaufort Securities on Friday, August 14. After posting $0.87 EPS for the previous quarter, Cna Financial Corp's analysts now forecast -11.49 % negative EPS growth.

The protests are a reflection of the anger in the community following the devastating fire that killed 30 people.

The newspaper said Friday that Omnis Exteriors manufactured the aluminum composite material used in the cladding.

This type of cladding is 2 pounds cheaper ($2.56) per square meter than the alternative Reynobond FR, which stands for "fire resistant".

The singer added that the humanitarian effort was being led by community leaders rather than the council, saying: "It is chaotic, they don't have any experience of it and I think it's actually playing into the hands of the Government because once these people's hope turns to anger, they have got a real problem on their hands".

At present, 17 people have been confirmed dead, with emergency crews fearing more than 100 people may have died in the inferno.

May visited Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, which is treating eight people. Police surrounded May as she left a church Friday following the meeting with survivors and protesters shouted "Shame on you!" and "Coward!"

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said Friday that 24 people are being treated in the hospital, including 12 in critical care. The number of victims is expected to grow.

It is not clear if the document represented the final design used in the refurbishment of Grenfell Tower, a 24-storey 1970s apartment block home to hundreds of residents, or whether fire barriers recommended by industry bodies were installed.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William visited an aid distribution site Friday for the tower's residents and met with volunteers.

More than 1 million pounds have been raised to help those affected by the massive blaze which ripped through the building. Entire families were missing, and the death toll is certain to rise.

Food, drink and other supplies are stored beneath an overpass near the fire in west London.
