After meeting with Grenfell survivors on Friday, Ms May announced a 5 million pound (AUS$8 million) fund to help them and expressed sorrow for their plight.

"Grenfell Tower itself is 120 flats".

While 30 people have been confirmed dead, there are fears the death toll could hit hundreds. All the rest are homeless.

London police said an investigation, led by a detective from its homicide and major crime unit, would examine whether criminal offences had been committed although they said there was nothing to suggest the fire was started deliberately. "That number 58 may change".

Community groups have said warnings about poor fire safety have been ignored, and in the aftermath of the disaster, officials have failed to take care of those affected, they said. He says "my heart goes out to those affected". A new sign was put up, removing that detail.

The DUP say they're not homophobic - they're just 'traditional' about marriage
DUP leader Arlene Foster arrived for talks with May. "We hope soon to be able to bring this work to a successful conclusion". The unionists have struggled for years with Irish Catholic nationalists who want Northern Ireland to join a united Ireland.

A resident in a nearby building watches smoke rise from a building on fire in London, Wednesday, June 14, 2017. She did speak with emergency services.

"Newspapers are calling May's decision not to meet survivors the day after the blaze her "Hurricane Katrina" moment", NPR's Frank Langfitt notes.

"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. Many chased after her armored cars, prompting the police to intervene and push people back. Spain faces Macedonia on Saturday night in the tournament, which is being played in Poland. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William visited an aid distribution site and were meeting with volunteers. The queen was born in April but celebrates in June.

At least 30 people have died in Wednesday's fire and dozens are missing.

NHS England says the injured are being treated in four London hospitals.

Toll rises to seven in Meghalaya landslide
The latest disaster caused by heavy rainfall has taken the landslide-related death toll in the Northeast this week to 17. Out of these 1 has been referred to NEIGRIHMS hospital, 2 to Ganesh Das Hospital and 6 to Civil Hospital, Shillong .

While the deadly blaze at the Grenfell Tower in north Kensington has prompted an outpouring of generosity, it has also unleashed fury at the authorities as the charred tower was cast as a deadly symbol of a divided society.

The government has promised a full public inquiry, but that has done little to a sense of frustration at the lack of information about how the fire moved so quickly to engulf the building. London Mayor Sadiq Khan called for an interim report on the fire to be published this summer.

Londoners and others have also donated huge amounts of food, water and clothing, and shelter, to survivors.

The British police fired a stun gun at a man who reached for a knife as he ran towards officers at one of the gates to the Westminster parliament in central London yesterday, witnesses said. More than $3.8 million has been raised for the victims.

"Those who mock health and safety, regulations and red tape need to take a hard look at the consequences of cutting these and ask themselves whether Grenfell Tower is a price worth paying".
