58 feared dead from fire in London tower block

Police say the harrowing search for remains had been paused on Friday because of safety concerns at the blacked tower but has now resumed, with emergency workers reaching the top of the tower.

The first victim to be formally identified was Mohammed Alhajali, a 23-year-old Syrian refugee, who came to Britain in 2014 with his brother.

The tragedy cast a pall on the Trooping the Color festivities that mark the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.

A firefighter who battled an intense blaze devouring a 24-storey apartment building in London has been left wishing he did more.

May was accosted by furious protesters earlier today as she attended the nearby Kensington Town Hall.

But the Government will press ahead with the first round of Brexit talks two days before the official opening of Parliament. Prime Minister May has come under pressure to seek a soft Brexit after losing her parliamentary majority last week.

Cundy said police will investigate the tower's refurbishment project, which experts believe may have left the building more vulnerable to a catastrophic blaze.

Police in London have said 58 people are now presumed dead following this week's devastating fire at Grenfell tower block.

He said that number could change should further information come to light.

The area surrounding the tower has been plastered by desperate relatives with pictures of the missing, from grandparents to young children.

This included the 30 already confirmed dead, according to Commander Stuart Cundy.

Almost half of Yemen's 22 provinces are on the verge of starvation , according to the UN World Food Program. Two thirds of the total population, around 19 million, need humanitarian and protection aid.

Mrs May was hustled away under heavy police guard from a meeting with residents on Friday as protesters shouted "Shame on you" and hundreds stormed a local town hall calling for justice.

The Prime Minister met the group of victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders at St Clement's Church close to the scene of the horrific blaze shortly before 5pm. "We need answers and we need answers now", another man said through a megaphone. "Nothing was done to improve fire-proofing standards, The Telegraph writes, while also citing changes in laws, unsafe cladding, no government reviews, and even missing sprinklers to try and explain the tragedy".

As the fire raged, Rania started recording on Facebook Live from her apartment where she was stuck due to thick smoke.

May who has promised £5 million (RM27.39 million) for emergency supplies, food and clothing, has also announced a judge-led inquiry into the disaster.

"Contractor says that he met all the fire safety standards but the questions are going to be, which kind of siding was used and what were the risks?"
