She did speak with emergency services.

SKY NEWS Theresa May faced tough questions over her Government's handling of the blaze.

Dozens of people attending an angry protest for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy stormed the town hall in London's richest borough on Friday, accusing the authorities of ignoring their plight.

The protesters barged their way through an automatic door and sought to gain entry to an upper floor. Police barred their way and scuffles broke out, a Reuters reporter said.

Almost 200 people chanting "We want justice!" marched near Notting Hill Gate tube station on Friday, demanding action from local councilors tasked with housing people following the disaster.

The protesters are seeking a list of demands which has been given to the council, Xinhua news agency reported. May on Thursday announced a public inquiry, a probe that investigates issues of major public concern.

Grenfell Tower is a public housing block owned by the local government council and managed by a non-profit organisation known as the Kensington and Chelsea Tenants Management Organization. There is ample food and water but very little privacy or proper bedding, and with the tower destroyed, no one knows where they will be relocated or for how long.

A day after the deadly incident, Housing Minister Alok Sharma told MPs the government "will guarantee that every single family from Grenfell Tower will be re-housed in the local area".

Earlier yesterday, Mrs May met victims privately at a central London hospital.

"People are angry and I share that anger", Mr Khan said, following heckles from the crowd.

"That's one of the most awful things I have ever seen", William told a volunteer.

On the lack of sprinklers in Grenfell Tower, and other buildings, he said: "My understanding is that the best expert advice is that retrofitting sprinklers may not always be the best technical way of ensuring fire safety in a building".

May herself had come in for a barrage of criticism for failing to visit residents and her response to the disaster.

But former cabinet minister Michael Portillo said the Prime Minister "didn't use her humanity".

Numerous locals who live near the tower and watched horrific scenes unfold before them think that the death toll will rise.

However, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson took to Facebook to attack Labour politicians for "political game playing", defending his record regarding the fire service as mayor of London between 2008-2016.

Queen Elizabeth and her grandson Prince William visited a community center Friday close to where the disaster happened, and spoke to people affected by the tragedy.

Speaking as he left the church with his wife Saadiya, Khan said: "I've spent time with the local community, not just the Christian congregation, but members of all faiths here at the church, grieving, sharing their stories".
