Cladding used in Grenfell Tower banned in United Kingdom, says govt

May was criticised for avoiding locals when she visited the disaster site on Thursday and faced cries of "Shame on you" and "coward" when she returned the following day, with police breaking up scuffles.

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

Days after a blaze tore through Grenfell Tower in London, the death toll continues to rise: City police announced Saturday that 58 people "are missing and we assumed likely to have died". The toll had previously been put at 30.

Angry crowds also stormed a local government office Friday, shouting, "We want justice" and demanding that authorities provide an accounting of the victims, as well as support for the survivors.

May said she would be responsible for implementing the inquiry's findings, while the victims' legal costs would be met by the government.

May has announced a fast-tracked public inquiry into the fire and said every household affected by the blaze would receive a minimum payment of £5,500 pounds from a £5 million emergency fund.

The inquiry will report back to the prime minister.

One of her closest allies, Damian Green, defended May, saying she was "distraught about what has happened".

"Somehow or other it seems to be beyond the wit of the public services to deal with a crisis facing a relatively small number of people in a country of 65 million". "I absolutely get why they're angry", Green said.

Asked on Newsnight whether she had misjudged the public mood over the tragedy, she said: "This was a bad tragedy that took place".

She and her husband, Prince Philip, attended a memorial service for the victims.

Speaking on ITV's Peston on Sunday, she said: "Kensington and Chelsea are giving £10 to the survivors when they go to hotels".

They also expressed anger that the prime minister did not meet with survivors or victims of the fire when she initially visited the neighborhood following the tragedy.

"In recent months, the country has witnessed a succession of awful tragedies", she said. "United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss".

Such a direct message from the monarch is rare and indicates the extent of the turmoil in Britain.

Some Grenfell residents had warned months ago that fire safety issues at the tower left it at risk of a "catastrophic" event. We're ensuring that we're going to get to the bottom of what's happened.

Matthew Parris, a columnist and former Conservative lawmaker, said May's response to the fire had shown a lack of judgment which made her unsuitable to be prime minister.

"No one local authority would be able to cope", he added.
