Commander Stuart Cundy said "my heart goes out to those affected".

The 1974-built concrete tower had recently been fitted with new exterior insulation cladding, which many locals blame for spreading the inferno so quickly.

Residents who survived said they warned the building's manager about fire hazards for years but were ignored.

The remains of Grenfell Tower stand in London, Saturday, June 17, 2017.

The mayor and his wife Saadiya joined the congregation Sunday at St.

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

Flowers and missing persons posters are taped to the gates of the church, while bags of donations are piled outside the door.

"When an existing building is undergoing a renovation, upgraded fire safety measures may be required depending on the type of insulation and cladding proposed as part of the renovation", he said.

The recovery effort resumed this afternoon, but the police warn it could take weeks for answers to emerge.

"People raised these concerns, people were expressing issues regarding the safety and risky living conditions", says Lancaster West Residents Association chairwoman Olesea Matcovschi. He says trust in the authorities is "falling through the floor".

Cundy said police will investigate the tower's refurbishment project, which experts believe may have left the building in the north Kensington area more vulnerable to a catastrophic blaze. Attention has focused on materials used during the renovation process completed previous year.

Writing in the Observer on Sunday, Mr Khan suggested high-rise tower blocks dating from the 1960s and 1970s could be torn down in the wake of the fire, which he said may well be the "defining outcome of this tragedy".

"Government is making money available, we're ensuring that we're going to get to the bottom of what's happened, we will ensure that people are rehoused", the prime minister said.

Rupinder Hardy, a manager at Ealing council, had been called by Ealing emergency response team on Friday to assist with the Grenfell Tower crisis, and was at Westway Sports Centre visiting family and meeting with volunteers from 7am on Saturday morning, and leaving after midnight. The figure of 58 are those that are missing and I have to assume are dead.

At 58 casualties, it would make the Grenfell Tower blaze the deadliest in the capital since the Second World War. A spokesman for Britain's Home Office said Saturday it was helping his family travel to the country from Syria, but did not provide further details.

Sixteen bodies have been removed from the blackened 24-story public housing unit and the first victim has been formally identified as Mohammed Alhajali, a 23-year-old Syrian refugee.

His family said in a statement that Alhajali "came to the United Kingdom because he had ambitions and aims for his life and for his family".
