The Queen has said the country has been "resolute in the face of adversity" following recent tragedies in London and Manchester.

Elizabeth said that during recent visits to meet victims she had been struck by the inclination of people to offer comfort and support to those in need.

Many wept openly as candles illuminated the road outside the Latymer Christian Centre, yards from the site of the blaze.

Nippon Yusen K.K., the Japanese shipping company that operates the container ship that collided with a U.S. Navy destroyer, says its 20-member crew all safe.

May was criticized for avoiding locals when she visited the burnt-out shell of the 24-storey tower on Thursday and faced cries of "Shame on you" and "Coward" when she returned the following day.

There have been others but none who reigned so long at world number one - 67 weeks - without success on the grand slam stage. The fans on Chatrier roared into full voice with Mladenovic pulling off a gutsy drop-shot victor to bring up break point.

"Both myself and colleagues from London Fire Brigade have already said it will take weeks". "People have lost their lives and others have lost everything, all their possessions, their home and everything". She has ordered a full public inquiry into the tragic incident, reports media.

The prime minister was jeered when she visited the Kensington site on Friday, and protests were held in the city.

May announced a £5 million package to help the victims, and promised to re-house majority in the Kensington and Chelsea borough.

The anger on the streets of London's North Kensington has been growing since the fire.

The Queen used her message on her official birthday to reflect of the tragedies that have engulfed the country over the last few months.

The Queen has released a statement to the nation on her official 91st birthday, recognising that although it is supposed to be a day of celebration, the nation is very much still in mourning.

Queen Elizabeth II on Saturday led a solemn minute of silence in memory of the victims of a fire at a high-rise residential tower block in west London that left at least 30 people dead.

The fire broke out shortly before 01:00 BST on Wednesday.

While the political fallout from the tragedy continues, the names of those who died are beginning to emerge. She later paid a private visit to one of the London hospitals where some of the rescued are undergoing treatment.

The Royal family then travelled back to Buckingham Palace where they gathered on the balcony for an RAF fly-past. "I will help you from up there". Corbyn said that if the government has any reason to believe specific tower blocks could be at risk, residents should be rehomed in the local area immediately, while these checks take place. But the government has been criticized for failing to act on recommendations from previous tower block fires.
