London fire: Jeremy Corbyn renews call to seize empty homes

Commander of the Metropolitan Police Stuart Cundy said in a statement that a recovery operation, which was briefly suspended for security reasons, had been resumed and family liaison officers were dealing with 52 families.

Trade Minister Greg Hands said the government is carrying out an "urgent inspection" of the roughly 2,500 similar tower blocks across Britain to assess their safety, while an opposition lawmaker urged the government to quickly secure documents in the Grenfell renovation for the criminal probe. Contractors are removing Grenfell details from their websites.

May herself had come in for a barrage of criticism for failing to visit residents and her response to the disaster.

Asked if there were angry exchanges, he said: "We tried to hold it well as a meeting".

Local residents have decried inadequate information and aid from council staff in the fire's aftermath, with hundreds of disgruntled demonstrators flocking to protest at Kensington town hall Saturday.

Two of the damaged compartments house the sleeping quarters, for more than 100 crew members, many of whom were likely asleep. Aircraft and vessels have been looking for the missing personnel since the two ships crashed in the pre-dawn hours Saturday.

"If there is a fire somewhere else in the tower block and you are not in immediate danger, you should stay put until the fire service can safely rescue you".

He said that feeling of being ignored is a source of much "deep frustration", and told how people have been left feeling "that decisions are taken about their lives and their homes that they are not party to". Those who lost their homes will be rehoused within three weeks, she said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, praising the emergency and community reaction to the fatal incident, acknowledged on Saturday the response hadn't been "good enough" and vowed a full inquiry into the fire.

Areas near the blaze are covered in posters showing missing persons.

A message from the church's president, Roger Walton, read out to the congregation, said his prayers were with local people, adding: "You are a symbol of hope in the dark days".

Around the corner, volunteers offered counseling to those traumatized by the disaster and handed out donated food and water to those in need. Locals yelled questions at Mayor Sadiq Khan on Thursday as he walked through the west London neighbourhood where the 24-storey Grenfell Tower went up in flames early on Wednesday.

The community also led a standing ovation and cheered for a fire truck as it drove though towards the north Kensington tower.

He said displaced residents are "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 successive governments".

The government has said the country will observe a moment of silence at 11 a.m. Monday in remembrance of the victims.
