Fears of resident in tower block refurbished by Grenfell cladding contractor

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

"So that 58 would include that 30", the spokesman said Saturday.

May was jeered after she made a visit to the community Friday.

"Given the magnitude and the scale of the crisis, this will clearly not be sufficient and I therefore await information regarding further plans", he said.

With anger mounting over the government's handling of the blaze, May met residents from the Grenfell Tower and vowed to personally oversee the recovery as protesters gathered to demonstrate in the streets around her residence for a second day. As many as 500 gathered at the building, forcing May to run to her vehicle under police guard as she left the building, with echoes of "coward" being hurled in her direction.

Hundreds outside Downing St to protest against Theresa May.

Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Cundy responded to fears that the number of dead could exceed 100 by saying: "I really hope it isn't".

The figure of 58 are those that are missing and I have to assume are dead.

"I would like to ask anyone who was in Grenfell Tower that night, but for whatever reason has not told us they are safe to please call our Casualty Bureau", he said.

He said: "We investigate criminal matters".

The death toll had previously stood at 30 and officials added that it would likely take weeks for all the bodies to be recovered and some may never be identified.

England thrashed by New Zealand in World U20 Championship final
South Africa claimed the bronze medal as they beat France 37-15, while Scotland took fifth place by edging Australia 24-17. New Zealand coach Craig Philpott gave his assessment on his team's dominant final performance of the Championship.

He said: "The conditions due to the fire damage verge on indescribable, which is why this will be such a lengthy operation taking weeks to complete".

Meanwhile, police and firefighters have now reached the top of the tower in their search. "My heart goes out to those affected", Cundy said.

The local Grenfell Action Group had claimed, before and during a major 10-million-pound refurbishment of Grenfell Tower a year ago, that the block constituted a fire risk and residents had warned that access to the site for emergency vehicles was "severely restricted".

But the authority's latest statement said: "While we will try do our utmost to ensure those affected remain in or near the borough, given the number of households involved, it is possible the council will have to explore housing options that may become available in other parts of the capital".

The block, which housed some 600 people in about 120 apartments, is in a low-rent housing estate next to one of the most affluent areas of Britain. "It is a truly terrifying thought but the Grenfell Action Group firmly believe that only a catastrophic event will expose the ineptitude and incompetence of our landlord, the KCTMO".

CTMO, the Kensington and Chelsea Management Organization, has managed the building on behalf of local public authorities who own it.

On Saturday, NHS England said 19 people were being treated in hospital, including 10 in critical care.

Earlier on Saturday, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip observed a moment of silence to honor the victims.

His statement came as Queen Elizabeth II reflected upon the sombre mood in the United Kingdom following tragedies in London and Manchester in recent weeks. "It should define the leadership of May and she should be forced to resign", he said.

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.
