Confirmed or Presumed Dead After London Blaze: UK Police

'As London faith representatives, our united minds, hearts and prayers are with everyone in Grenfell Tower and with the families and friends of all those who are impacted.

Authorities in London said Saturday that 58 people missing are presumed dead from this week's fire disaster at a high-rise tower.

Residents of the tower say May was far too slow to visit the stricken community, that the building had been unsafe, and that officials have failed to give enough information and support to those who have lost relatives and their homes.

Experts believe the building's cladding, which contained insulation, helped the flames spread quickly up the outside of the housing complex.

Cundy said the police investigation into the blaze would look at the building and its refurbishment in 2016 and vowed to prosecute people "if there is evidence".

A criminal investigation and government inquiry will probe whether the regulations were broken when the building was refurbished, Hammond said.

Later, when Sekulow tried to argue about Wallace's motivations, Wallace would come back to that statement. And attacked his own deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein (who now might resign or recuse himself ).

Hands cautioned Sunday that investigators still don't know exactly what cladding was used when the building renovation was completed past year. "We need to find out precisely what cladding was used and how it was attached".

Labour Party lawmaker David Lammy demanded that the government and police immediately seize all documents relating to Grenfell's renovation to prevent the destruction of evidence that could show criminal wrongdoing.

He said all records - including emails, minutes of meetings, correspondence with contractors, safety assessments, specifications and reports - must be kept intact.

The death toll in the fire that engulfed a 24-storey tower in west London rose to 30 yesterday amid fears that it could climb to over 100 in one of the worst fire tragedies in the country.

National media in London reported extensively Friday that it would have cost just 5,000 pounds (6,400 USA dollars) extra for a cladding material with better fire protection qualities. He has not provided details about the inquiry.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Sunday after attending a church service several blocks from the tower that the fatal blaze was entirely preventable.

May announced a £5 million package to help the victims, and promised to re-house majority in the Kensington and Chelsea borough. The tragedy cast a pall on the Trooping the Color festivities that mark the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II .

'Angry not simply at the poor response in the days afterwards from the council and the government, but the years of neglect from the council and from successive governments, ' he added.

May said those living in similar high-rises "also want answers" and ordered local authorities to complete urgent safety checks.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday, following a memorial service in honor of the victims, Khan criticized the local London council and the British government.

The update from police came as Prime Minster Theresa May met for more than two hours with survivors of the blaze at her office at 10 Downing Street. May also said that she has set a deadline of three weeks for all the survivors of the Grenfell fire to be placed in new housing.

Of the building's 120 flats, family liaison officers are working with 52 families to ensure loved ones are told as soon as victims are formerly identified.

Prince William hugged a victim of Wednesday's deadly west London fire (which now has a death toll of 58 people) when he made a visit to a crisis center on Friday. This relies on dental records, fingerprints and DNA when possible and also features like tattoos or scars.
