London fire: Queen Elizabeth issues somber message after site visit

While 30 people have been confirmed dead, there are fears the death toll could hit hundreds.

Mr Cundy said: "Sadly, at this time there are 58 people who we have been told were in the Grenfell Tower on the night that are missing, and therefore sadly, I have to assume that they are dead".

Appearing to brush over the question, the Prime Minister: "What I have done since this incident took place is, first of all yesterday, ensure that public services had the support that they needed in order to be able to do the job they were doing in the immediate aftermath".

Scotland Yard is leading the criminal investigation into the fire at Grenfell Tower to establish the exact cause of the fire.

The police stressed in a statement that "there is nothing to suggest the fire was started deliberately".

He said the death toll could still change if anyone reported as missing was found alive, of if anyone was found in the ruined tower who had not been reported as missing. One opposition lawmaker urged the Conservative government and police to immediately seize all documents related to the tower renovation.

London police late Sunday released photographs of the devastation inside the 120-unit building to show the public and frustrated family members why the search for victims is taking so long.

"Sadly, our work will be ongoing for many, many weeks".

On Saturday May spent over two hours meeting residents from the north Kensington area at her Downing Street residence and chaired a meeting on the government's response to the fire.

"We're all desperately sad", said Green, who was appointed May's deputy in the wake of the general election.

Around 70 people are missing, according to Britain's Press Association, and identification of the victims is proving very hard.

Officials are using dental records, fingerprints and DNA samples to try and positively identify victims. This relies on dental records, fingerprints and DNA when possible and also features like tattoos or scars. "The PM has sent her best wishes to HM Queen on the event of her birthday".

He said there was still "simmering anger" among residents as well as "hostility and concern" over whether it Downing Street might offer no more than "warm words".

Responding to criticism of May's actions, first secretary of state Damian Green said the prime minister was "distraught" over the fire.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", Elizabeth said in a message on her official birthday.

Maitlis asked: "Do you accept you misread the public mood on this one, you misread the anger that people feel about this?"

Scuffles broke out near the Kensington and Chelsea town hall offices Friday as demonstrators chanting "We want justice!" surged toward the doors.

The government has promised a full public inquiry, but that has done little to ease a sense of frustration at the lack of information about how the fire moved so quickly to engulf the building.

Experts believe the exterior cladding, which contained insulation, helped spread the flames quickly along the outside of the tower in the Wednesday morning blaze that has killed at least 58 people.

Londoners and others have also donated huge amounts of food, water and clothing, and shelter, to survivors. More than 3 million pounds ($3.8 million) have been raised for the victims.

Some residents had warned months ago that the tower represented a risky fire risk. The authorities appeared to have ignored multiple warnings that drew from the experience of fires in other properties under their control, simply because they were not constrained by the law and knew the tenants were powerless to do anything.
