Theresa May tries to quell public anger, meets fire victims

Cundy said there may have been other people in the tower who police are not aware of, and that could increase the death toll.

Railway tracks run in front of the charred remains of the Grenfell Tower block in Kensington, west London, on June 17, following the June 14 fire at the residential building.

In a statement on Saturday, Met Police Commander Stuart Cundy said: "Whilst I sincerely hope that our work over the coming days means that we able to say that less people are confirmed as having died, I also have to consider the sad reality that this may rise".

Previous estimates have stepped into triple figures as firefighters search the gutted building flat-by-flat.

He said that feeling of being ignored is a source of much "deep frustration", and told how people have been left feeling "that decisions are taken about their lives and their homes that they are not party to".

"We want it to be able to..."

On Saturday May met a group of 15 victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders at her Downing Street office.

Ms Nachmany said she has no idea if any of the offers have been sent on to displaced residents in north Kensington - but council officials insist "all residents of Grenfell Tower who have requested help have been placed in hotels".

"What we are doing is putting in place the support that will help them". But the meeting is unlikely to quell complaints that the prime minister has been slow to reach out to fire survivors.

Mr Cundy also appealed to anyone who may have escaped from the building, but has not yet come forward, to make themselves known. "We're all angry, but of course none of us as angry as those who were directly affected".

The Prince, who will turn four next month, and his sister Princess Charlotte appeared transfixed by the flypast, as they made their now-annual appearance on the palace balcony to wave to assembled crowds. They would wear high-visibility clothing so they could easily be found, dispense advice and ensure the right support is provided, she added. May returned to the neighbourhood the following day to meet with survivors at St.

One banner showed a drawing of May with the words "Shame" and "Disgrace".

The Government has also announced that a minute's silence will be held for the victims at 11am tomorrow.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", Elizabeth said in a message on her official birthday.

He said: "Little can compare in recent times to a tragedy on this scale - the response from the local authority has simply not been good enough".

"Put to the test, the United Kingdom has been resolute in the face of adversity", the queen wrote in her message.

She reiterated her promise of a public inquiry which will "report back to me personally" and pledged victims' legal costs would be paid by the Government.

After a tumultuous week that pitched Britain into its deepest political crisis since the Brexit referendum a year ago, May's future was already uncertain due to her failed gamble on a snap election.
