Minute's silence for victims of Grenfell Tower blaze

When was Grenfell Tower built what is the address and how many floors are there

"The bad reality, as I've said before, is that due to the intensity of the fire and the devastation within Grenfell Tower that we may not be able to identify everybody that died", Cundy told reporters.

Hammond said that will be a focus of the inquiry and investigation. Authorities are trying to determine if any criminal offenses were made by the building's managers, with accounts from residents indicating that it was for years a fire trap.

A prominent British Labour Party lawmaker is calling for police and the government to seize all documents relating to the renovation of a London high-rise destroyed by a fire that killed dozens of its residents.

"Whilst it will look at the how, perhaps more importantly, it will also look at why this happened", Cundy said.

May has come under personal attack for failing to meet residents during her first visit to the site.

May also said that a public inquiry that is looking into the Grenfell Fire will report directly to her and that she has asked for daily updates from the neighbourhood to be sent to her.

Cundy said police will investigate the tower's refurbishment project, which experts believe may have left the building more vulnerable to a catastrophic blaze.

The Prime Minister said there had been "huge frustrations" on the ground as people struggled to find information.

Authorities may never be able to identify some of the victims, he said.

But there have been challenges. "That sort of thing has gone on for a while", Dineen said at The Alameda Whole Foods in San Jose. The shift started within minutes of the announcement online retailer Amazon would taking over the grocery chain Whole Foods .

Cladding used on Grenfell Tower is banned in Britain, the Chancellor has said as Government staff were drafted in to handle the response to the disaster. We know that there are still bodies of those who died inside the building and we want to return those people to their families as soon as we possibly can."The work to search the building is challenging, but naturally could never be done quickly enough for those now having to live with the uncertainty of knowing where their loved ones are". They say their complaints were ignored - and fear it was because the tower was full of poor people in a predominantly wealthy borough.

Prime Minister Theresa May was to chair another meeting of top officials in response to the tragedy.

The Grenfell Tower disaster is now the deadliest fire in mainland Britain since at least the turn of the last century.

John Cowley, managing director of CEP Architectural Facades, which produced rain-screen panels and windows for the building's cladding sub-contractor Harley Facades Ltd, said: "Reynobond PE is not banned in the UK".

"We are supporting the families and the loved ones of each of those 79", Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Candy said in a statement.

LONDON (AP) - London police on Saturday raised to 58 the number of deaths either confirmed or presumed following the horrific inferno that turned the city's Grenfell Tower public housing block into a charred hulk.

Downing Street said desperate families got £500 ($879) in cash on Sunday to be followed by a £5000 ($8791) bank transfer tomorrow - after victims told of getting just £10 ($17) a day so far.

"As recent awful events in London and Manchester have brought to light, Blue Light workers do an extremely challenging job, encountering hard and traumatic situations", he said.
