London fire: Banned building materials suspected in Grenfell Tower

Fire victims in passionate talks with PM

"The response of the emergency services, National Health Service, and the community has been heroic", Ms May said in a statement.

One woman wept, saying it was because the PM declined to speak to anyone outside the meeting which lasted less than hour.

Cundy said a full forensic and systematic search was being carried out, but people must prepare for the worst.

Prime Minister Theresa May and her ministers were scrambling to make up ground following stinging criticism that the government's initial response to the disaster.

The identification of the victims is proving very hard - which experts attribute to the extreme heat of the fire. Some said they had never seen a building fire advance so quickly.

Residents say they were ignored and want the government to take responsibility.

They made images public to give people an idea of the scale of the challenge they are facing as they now try to identify victims.

A solemn Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip held a minute of silence for the fire victims at the start of the procession Saturday.

"The key question now is whether the overall design of the building's complete exterior was properly tested and subsequently signed off by the relevant authorities including the fire officer, building compliance officer and architect before commencement of the project".

Van hits Muslims after night prayers
Numerous victims are believed to have just finished worshipping at the Finsbury Park mosque after breaking the Ramadan fast. This comes after a month after three knife-wielding Islamist attackers went on a rampage in London killing seven people.

"It is hard to escape a very somber national mood", the queen said in a statement to mark her official birthday - an occasion that typically does not result in any public comments from the monarch. May sidestepped questions about the length of time between the fire and her visit and focused on supporting the victims.

Hundreds have been left homeless by the blaze, putting more pressure on officials in a city already plagued by a chronic housing shortage.

Protesters gathered to call for help for the residents of the burned building, and the BBC reports that dozens of people "stormed Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall with a list of demands".

Alongside both police and fire investigations into the blaze, she has promised to set up a public inquiry.

On the lack of sprinklers in Grenfell Tower, and other buildings, he said: "My understanding is that the best expert advice is that retrofitting sprinklers may not always be the best technical way of ensuring fire safety in a building". British officials have ordered a review of other buildings that have had similar renovations. May has announced a fund of about $6.5 million for the victims. Numerous displaced are living in churches and community centers.

They added that local residents should be "consulted at all stages and that we should be listened to" in dealing with the fallout from the tragedy.

The aluminium cladding, called Reynobond, is banned for buildings taller than 12 metres in the United States, far lower than the 24-storey Grenfell Tower that was consumed by the roaring blaze, according to a salesman for the company that manufactures it.

Asked if they would be looking specifically into manslaughter charges, he said: "Yes".
