Theresa May meeting Grenfell fire victims and volunteers in Downing Street

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

Police said on Saturday that at least 58 people had been confirmed or were assumed to have died in this week's blaze at the Grenfell Tower block. The rest are missing presumed dead, Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said on Monday. The public is also demanding answers about how the blaze spread so quickly amid reports that the recently-renovated building's exterior paneling fueled the flames.

People cast shadows as they read a message board placed near Grenfell Tower in London, Saturday, June 17, 2017. The British government has announced a 5 million-pound ($6.3 million) emergency fund for the victims.

"The prime minister is this morning chairing a cross-government meeting to ensure everything possible is being done to support those affected by the Grenfell tragedy", the spokesman said. But we may well need help from our close neighbours.

One firefighter, in his black protective suit with FIRE emblazoned in yellow on the back, embraced a distraught woman who had photos of a missing person printed on her top.

The PM later visited survivors in hospital before inviting a group of residents to Downing Street for talks lasting two and a half hours.

On Sunday, residents who met the Prime Minister in Downing Street following the Grenfell Tower fire criticised estate managers of the building as having been "invisible in the aftermath of the tragedy".

"People have given money to the Kensington appeal in the expectation that that would be used rapidly to give direct help", she said, adding: "To hear that people are being given just £10 - I am just appalled to hear that".

Darjeeling shutdown continues, Rajnath Singh appeals GJM to resolve issues through dialogues
On Saturday, police and Gorkhaland supporters clashed with each other at various places in the Hills. The police said they are keeping a close watch on all the activities of GJM and will do the needful.

Following the meeting, May issued in a statement in which she acknowledged that "support on the ground for families that needed help or basic information in the initial hours after this appalling disaster was not good enough".

She added: "No one is telling us where it is".

Matthew Parris, a columnist and former Conservative lawmaker, said May's response to the fire had shown a lack of judgment which made her unsuitable to be prime minister.

"We're all desperately sad, we're all angry, but of course none of us as angry as those who were directly affected".

'We urge swift action to rehouse the homeless, in consultation with them, rather than send them to cheaper places far from London, ' the London Faiths Forum said in a statement.

The queen marked her official birthday Saturday by saying Britain remains "resolute in the face of adversity" after the horrendous fire and recent extremist attacks in London and Manchester. "This year, however, it is hard to escape a very somber national mood".

"It is hard to escape a very somber national mood", Elizabeth said in a message. "In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of awful tragedies". "Again, I would urge them if that is you, I don't care the reason, please, please contact us".
