London mayor admits public anger over deadly fire

By contrast, Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's response to the deadly blaze was suggest the "requisitioning" some of the expensive empty homes of the Kensington elite to ensure that displaced residents have shelter.

The remains of Grenfell Tower stand in London, Saturday, June 17, 2017.

The government has promised a full public inquiry, but that has done little to a sense of frustration and anger among residents and neighbours who demand answers for how the blaze spread so quickly and trapped so numerous tower's roughly 600 residents.

Reports suggest that a renovation project on Grenfell Tower previous year intentionally did not include safety devices such as sprinklers and doors created to keep the fire from spreading.

Commander of the Metropolitan Police Stuart Cundy said in a statement that a recovery operation, which was briefly suspended for security reasons, had been resumed and family liaison officers were dealing with 52 families.

London Police's investigation remains on-going, as fire crews continue the grim and slow task of identifying and recovering bodies from inside the tower.

Though 30 people have been confirmed dead so far, the death toll is expected to rise as the building held hundreds of people and many were trapped in their homes during the fire.

Police say 24 injured people remain at the hospital.

British outlets said May struggled to offer support or leadership in the wake of the blaze, accusing her of lacking emotional intelligence and calling her "Maybot".

He said the group had spoken about their "demands and what we expect".

But the identification of the victims appears to be proving very hard, which experts attribute to the extreme heat of the fire.

A criminal investigation and government inquiry will probe whether the regulations were broken when the building was refurbished, Hammond said.

The tragedy cast a pall on the Trooping the Color festivities that mark the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.

The 91-year-old monarch said it is "difficult to escape a very somber mood" on what is normally a day of celebration. In an interview on Saturday, May admitted that the government's response to the disaster was "not good enough" as she announced a fast-tracked public inquiry into the fire promised to provide increased aid to help survivors cope and find alternative housing.

"We do not want another fatality arising out of this tragedy".

The British government Sunday scrambled to contain political fallout from the London high-rise inferno that has claimed at least 58 lives as officials focused on building materials that may have spread the fire quickly.

The leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council - the authority that owns the tower block - told the BBC it would not use the type of cladding fitted to Grenfell Tower in other buildings in the borough. British officials have ordered a review of other buildings that have had similar renovations.

During the visit, they met with first responders from the Emergency Services, as well as local residents and community representatives. More than 3 million pounds ($3.8 million) have been raised for the victims. Numerous displaced are living in churches and community centres.

"Those who mock health and safety, regulations and red tape need to take a hard look at the consequences of cutting these and ask themselves whether Grenfell Tower is a price worth paying".
