Simon Cowell to announce charity single for London fire victims

British health authorities say they are still treating 19 patients, 10 of whom remain in critical condition after the London high-rise fire.

The use of fire investigation dogs will help to speed up the process and allow crew to explore damaged corners of the building that a human would simply be unable to reach.

Choucair told Reuters residents had concerns about the safety of the building and she was angry about what has happened.

Today, Prime Minister Theresa May announced a 5 million pound ($6.4 million) fund to help the families impacted by the fire, and The Associated Press reports that it "includes a guarantee to rehouse people as close as possible to where they previously lived".

But Hammond said it was up to the public inquiry to determine whether the retrofitting of sprinklers to buildings was necessary to improve fire safety.

May ordered a full public inquiry.to ensure that "this awful tragedy is properly investigated".

Among the questions being asked are whether the owner of the building took any shortcuts in its use of construction materials, including the installation of external cladding, part of a renovation completed past year, that may have accelerated the fire's spread: It took only 15 minutes to take hold across the tower block.

Cundy said one of the victims was a person who died in hospital.

"They told me that this is not a matter for the council but for the coroner, the police and others", the crowd were told.

Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Cundy responded to speculation that the number of dead could exceed 100, saying: "For those of us that have been down there, it's pretty emotional, so I hope it is not triple figures, but I can't be drawn on the numbers".

At least 30 people died after a blaze took hold in the early hours of Wednesday and engulfed the tower block in west London which housed some 600 residents in more than 120 apartments.

Police say 58 people at the tower are now confirmed or presumed dead.

"It's a bad tragedy for which no one is taking responsibility", she said.

There is palpable anger on the streets that those in authority could have done more to prevent the disaster that has also sparked concerns that the blaze may not be the last such tragedy without dramatic changes to Britain's public housing towers.

Locals yelled questions at London Mayor Sadiq Khan when he walked through the neighbourhood yesterday.

The government has promised a full public inquiry.

David Lammy said Sunday he is anxious that documents will be quietly deleted and disposed of as police begin a search for evidence.

Residents feel they have not been listened to after claiming to have made repeated warnings about the fire risk of Grenfell Tower.

That's partly to avoid repeated, unnecessary evacuations that cause people eventually to ignore such orders when they really matter.

Police said they were using dental records, fingerprints and DNA samples to identify victims, along with features such as tattoos, scars, jewelry, or distinctive clothing.

Scuffles broke out near the building, with demonstrators chanting "we want justice!" as they surged toward the doors.

The 91-year-old monarch said it is "difficult to escape a very sombre mood" on what is normally a day of celebration.
