UK: London Apartment Tower Used Banned Siding in Renovation

London police said today that 79 people were now believed to have died in the high-rise apartment building fire.

United Kingdom police had earlier put the toll at 58 presumed dead.

Cundy said an investigation will "seek to find out if any crimes have been committed and if so make sure that we do all we can to bring any person responsible to justice".

British Chancellor Phillip Hammond has told the BBC the reportedly cheap, flammable cladding fitted to London's Grenfell tower is banned in the United Kingdom, as authorities continue to investigate whether it contributed to the speed and spread of Wednesday's deadly blaze.

"Our thoughts are also with the emergency services as they fulfil their extremely hard, and undoubtedly distressing, task in the coming days and weeks".

"This is an unprecedented incident", London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton told reporters Wednesday night.

Residents in shock over the tragic Grenfell Tower Fire which is feared to have killed up to 79 people have been assured of the safety of Dartford's council housing.

The 1974-built concrete tower had recently been fitted with new exterior insulation cladding, which many locals blame for spreading the inferno so quickly.

Police Commander Stuart Cundy says police will seek criminal prosecutions if the evidence warrants.

Trade Minister Greg Hands added that the government is conducting what he called an "urgent inspection" of some 2,500 other tower blocks across Britain to evaluate their safety. Meacham, the MA professor, addressed the gathering and said he did not sense much interest in fire safety within the green building industry then - or since.

Either way, a veteran presence in the back of their bullpen is something to cherish as they make a push for October. However, the Nationals bullpen has been the highlight of the team's recent struggles.

Since the fire, more than 58 people have perished, and many people remain in hospital. Lily Allen was quick to offer "a bed or a lift, or tea" to anyone in need, and Jamie Oliver welcomed families affected to his Westfield restaurant for free food and support.

Only five victims have been formally identified - and Cundy said that because of the fire's intensity and the devastation it caused, authorities may not be able to identify everybody who died.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, criticized shortly after the blaze for failing to meet with victims, says the public inquiry looking into the tragedy will report directly to her.

Among the Londoners are some high profile names, with countless celebrities helping out after the Grenfell Tower fire. "Equally there may be people who were in there that we believe are missing that did escape but for whatever reason have not let it be known that they're safe and well, so again I would appeal to them directly".

British health authorities will also provide long-term bereavement counselling for those who lost loved ones in the tragedy.
