Two women feared dead in Grenfell Tower were 'threatened with legal action' for raising alarm about fire safety

Two women feared dead in Grenfell Tower were 'threatened with legal action' for raising alarm about fire safety

A minute's silence was held across the country for the victims yesterday.

He said police had received some 70 pictures and videos of the fire from the public and urged them to send more as officers investigate the blaze. In particular, William met a woman whose husband is missing since he found himself stuck in one of the elevators of the building in flames.

Search and recovery efforts are likely to go on for weeks, if not months, authorities warn.

"And it is incredibly hard to describe the devastation in some parts of that building".

"That's why she totally accepted that it (the government response) hadn't been good enough".

Three more Grenfell Tower victims named, as death toll rises to 79
The down-payment is part of a £5m support fund established by the Government in the wake of Wednesday's fire. Those who lost their home will also be given £500 in cash, the Government announced on Sunday.

"We opened the door to her and she took her sunglasses off and said: 'Hi, I'm Adele, '" he recalled.

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) said it was concerned that justice would not be done unless victims were made "central" to the public inquiry, and that it must examine the "wider context" of last Wednesday's tragedy.

Appearing on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Mr Hammond said: "My understanding is the cladding in question, this flammable cladding which is banned in Europe and the USA, is also banned here".

There were angry scenes at the offices of the Kensington and Chelsea council, which was responsible for managing the 1970s social housing block in a working-class enclave of one of Britain's richest areas. The fire has led to national soul-searching about inequalities and neglect of the poor.

Also, it has an estimated price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 12.93 and a trailing 12-month price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 14.75. On average, equities analysts anticipate that American Express Company will post $5.70 earnings per share for the current year.

'It also needs to look much wider at the regulations and the regime that now operates in building control, planning and fire safety'.

"I believe there may be people who were in Grenfell Tower that people may not know were missing and may not have realized they were in there on the night".

The nation fell silent at 11am to remember those who perished in last week's Grenfell Tower disaster, as the death toll reached 79.

Mr Cundy said the death toll may still change, but not as significantly as it has in recent days, adding: "The very bad reality is that we may not be able to identify all those that died inside what is now a blackened and charred shell".
