Theresa May's plan for Grenfell Tower victims LEAKED - her priorities revealed

"We must also prepare people for the bad reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire", Commander Cundy added, stating that number of people missing and presumed dead will continue to rise.

"I'm afraid to say there are now 79 people that we believe are either dead or missing and I sadly have to presume are dead", police commander Stuart Cundy told reporters.

"The figure of 58 are those who are missing and that we have to presume are dead", said Cundy.

He said: "I thought the way they expressed themselves with a mixture of passion and reason was fantastic, and I hope it's the beginning of a process, not the end of a process, the beginning of a process of real listening between Government, RBKC (the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council), local residents, that will bring about lasting change".

Prime Minister Theresa May's government earlier sought to quell anger over the fire, pledging to support the victims of the blaze after protesters jeered her when she visited local residents.

Mrs May's letter said a task force agreed yesterday "a number of actions that the Government will take".

She also pledged 5 million pounds ($6.39 million) of support, housing guarantees and help with access to bank accounts and cash.

The identification of the victims is proving very hard - which experts attribute to the extreme heat of the fire.

"Only five victims have been identified so far and the death toll may rise".

Cundy said the "complex" and "exhaustive" inquiry will focus on a range of issues including how the building was constructed, a recent refurbishment of it, how it is managed and maintained and fire safety measures.

Officials are using dental records, fingerprints, DNA samples, tattoos and scars to try and positively identify victims.

The tragedy cast a pall on the Trooping the Color festivities that mark the official birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.

A minute's silence was held across Britain at 11am local time (10pm NZT) to honour the victims of the fire - a painfully familiar ritual after the country has been hit by three deadly attacks by militants in London and Manchester since March.

In a television interview on Friday, she sidestepped questions over whether she had misread the public mood.

LeBron James' legacy and context
As the Golden State Warriors bask in the glow of their second NBA Championship in three years, 29 other teams across the U.S. You couldn't help but wonder what Kevin Durant was thinking last night as the clock ticked down to the NBA Championship.

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".

The police are appealing to anyone with pictures or videos of the blaze to hand them in, as they may help establish not only where and how the fire started, but also how it spread.

Meanwhile, a company involved in the renovation of the tower was forced to deny cladding on the building was banned in the United Kingdom after comments made by Chancellor Phillip Hammond.

The tragedy has provoked a huge response from nearby communities. Numerous displaced are living in churches and community centers.

What makes the London fire maddening for fire experts who believe in the "stay put" rule is that the Grenfell may have lacked numerous safety redundancies necessary to make it work.

She said firefighters did not know "why the fire spread in that absolutely unusual and extraordinary way".

She also defended the fire service's advice for people to stay in their flats during tower block fires, saying that having everyone evacuate from such blocks through a single staircase would cause further injuries and hamper efforts to put out smaller blazes.
