Grenfell Tower fire survivors given just £10 to live on, volunteer says

A total of 58 people who were in the Grenfell Tower on the night of the fire were missing and presumed to be dead, London police Commander said Saturday.

In a television interview, the Prime Minister said the fire was "absolutely horrifying" and had been a "terrifying experience" for those affected.

There was a large police presence as Mrs May met a group of victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders at St Clement's Church close to the scene of the horrific blaze on Friday afternoon.

"The response of the emergency services, NHS and the community has been heroic", she said in a statement.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered a judge-led full public inquiry into the incident. The move follows widespread criticism of the local Kensington and Chelsea Council's performance as residents of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower, which was engulfed in fire early on Wednesday, condemned the relief efforts and lack of information. Police say 24 injured people remain at the hospital.

Fire safety experts believe that cladding used on the building's exterior may have fuelled the blaze.

'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.
