London Police Raise Death Toll In Tower Fire To 30

The fire that consumed London's Grenfell Tower, tragically killing at least 30 people, may have dissipated, but it has once again focused attention on the city's social housing crisis.

May was bundled into a waiting auto by police and a video posted by Channel 4 news shows a woman being held back outside the vehicle.

A disturbance briefly broke out near a different exit to the building, reportedly as police tried to escort council staff out. Police say 24 injured people remain at the hospital.

It has also been confirmed the fire service's mobile platform can reach the top of the blocks, while each of the buildings has three exits, including the main entrance and two emergency exits, while communal areas have fire-retardant paint. Several dozen police, including mounted officers, were in attendance.

On the Town Hall steps, Mr Mansour read out responses to the demands from the council, which stated those affected would be rehoused as near to the area as possible.

Relatives of those missing after a high-rise tower blaze in London posted pictures of their loved ones Friday in the desperate hope of news, as grief following the tragedy has turned to outrage at authorities accused of being lax in meeting building standards.

British authorities are launching a criminal investigation into the London apartment building fire - as the death toll from the blaze has almost doubled, to 30.

The move came after strong criticism from London's mayor, Sadiq Khan.

Mrs May has ordered a formal inquiry led by a judge into the disaster that turned the apartment tower into a smouldering ruin.

London Fire Brigade said the service has been "overwhelmed" by the support it has received from all over the world. "You have to be prepared to receive people's emotions, and not be so frightened about people", former Conservative cabinet minister Michael Portillo told the BBC.

"The local community feels their grief has been made worse by the lack of information about their missing family members and friends", he wrote.

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.

Witnesses have said exterior cladding on the tower block created a chimney effect, drawing flames up the building.

Ms May says she "spoke with people who ran from the fire in only the clothes they were wearing". However, we can reassure residents that safety is our top priority.

In a TV interview, Mrs May said the fire was "absolutely horrifying" and had been a "terrifying experience" for those affected.

Other large protests later emerged in other parts of London, including hundreds elsewhere in Kensington and at least 1,400 people on Downing Street, according to organiser estimates. Police have said it could take months to search the building and some victims might never be identified.
