58 people are presumed dead in Grenfell Tower disaster

The visit can be seen as a response to the anger of residents from the west London neighbourhood after the British Prime Minister visited the scene of the fire without meeting victims.

Yesterday May met a group of 15 victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders at her Downing Street office.

Firefighters are still searching for victims in the 24-story Grenfell Tower that went up in flames early Wednesday. Those who lost their homes will be rehoused within three weeks, she said.

Hundreds of people, including singer and human rights campaigner Lily Allen, were protesting outside the town hall of Kensington and Chelsea, holding up cardboard signs reading "Justice for Grenfell".

Teams were forced to leave the building on Thursday afternoon when the fire restarted, delaying further the efforts to reach upper floors, where some victims are thought to have been trapped.

Fifty-eight people are still missing after the Grenfell Tower fire and are presumed dead, police say. I am sure you will all understand we do not want another fatality arising out of this tragedy. The former housing minister promised a review of building regulations covering fire safety, but was never published. They say their complaints were ignored.

Emergency workers walk on the roof of the fire-gutted Grenfell Tower in London, Friday, June 16, 2017, after a fire engulfed the 24-storey building on Wednesday morning.

As reported by Yahoo News, May has been accused of cowardice for failing to talk to residents of Grenfell Tower, who escaped with their lives but lost everything else.

Sinn Fein and the DUP dominate Northern Irish politics, with the two parties winning seven and 10 seats, respectively, from a total of 18 in the province.

Following the meeting, Mrs May released a strongly-worded statement in which she said on-the-ground support for families in the immediate aftermath of the blaze "was not good enough".

Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip have observed a minute of silence to honor the victims of the London high-rise fire.

Cundy added it was hard to say how many people were missing, but he said police did not expect to find any survivors in the search of the tower.

The 91-year-old monarch said that Britain remains "resolute in the face of adversity" after the horrendous fire and recent extremist attacks in London and Manchester.

The prime minister's performance was met with scorn on social media but also by once-friendly media outlets such as the Daily Mail, which panned her interview showing on its website under the headline "Maybot malfunction". He asked anyone who was in the tower and survived to contact police immediately.

An additional £1.5 million will be provided to pay for mental health support to the emergency services, through mental health charity Mind's Blue Light Programme.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre 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.
