New exterior cladding used on London's Grenfell Tower may have been banned

Grenfell residents in ‘passionate angry’ exchanges with PM at Downing Street

Police said the death toll could change.

Police say at least 58 people are either confirmed or presumed dead, with the figure likely to rise in coming days.

Cundy said there may have been people in the tower that police are not aware of, which would add to the death toll.

Following the meeting, May issued in a statement in which she acknowledged that "support on the ground for families that needed help or basic information in the initial hours after this appalling disaster was not good enough".

No. 10 officials said support workers would ensure people could access the cash - including those who may not have a bank account. Do they permit the right kind of materials, and ban the wrong kind of materials?

Commander Cundy furthermore highlighted: "Our investigation will be wide ranging and exhaustive - it will seek to find out if any crimes have been committed and if so make sure that we do all we can to bring any person responsible to justice.

If more funding is required, it will be provided", May said, while more than 1,000 protesters rallied outside her residence Saturday.

"His family is being supported by liaison officers from the Metropolitan Police", Cundy said.

Queen Elizabeth II said the disaster had cast a sombre pall over Britain, but insisted the country was showing resolve in the face of adversity.

May said those living in similar high-rises "also want answers" and ordered local authorities to complete urgent safety checks.

Around 70 people are missing, according to Britain's Press Association, and identification of the victims is proving very hard.

London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton has described the "truly shocking" moment she arrived on the scene of the Grenfell Tower fire, saying when she first looked up it appeared "like something out of a disaster movie, like something that could never happen in London".

She said since the devastating fire in London staff members from Gentoo have visited every home in the Wearside tower blocks to assure people and address any concerns they may have.

The fire at the 24-story public housing project broke out early Wednesday. He was situated 40 minutes from Grenfell Tower when he learned news of the fire, and rushed there in a taxi to be with his brothers.

Many survivors are sleeping on the floor in community centers and there's still no coordinated distribution of donated food and clothing.

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

More than 70 people reportedly remain unaccounted for and the area surrounding the tower has been plastered by distraught relatives with pictures of the missing, from grandparents to young children.

Some 110 families are reported to have been given temporary accommodation by in hotels within the local area.

A "Grenfell Fire Response Team", pooling resources from local and national government, the British Red Cross, police and fire brigade is also being set up, to focus primarily on finding new homes for survivors as quickly as possible. "We were seeking a change to the building regulations for that very objective", he added.

Writing in the Observer newspaper, Khan says it may well be the "defining outcome of this tragedy that the worst mistakes" of that era become a thing of the past.

He says it may be necessary for numerous outmoded tower blocks built in the 1970s to be demolished because of safety concerns.
