Grenfell Tower blaze: Glasgow removal company overwhelmed with donations for homeless families

  • Lord Rothermere revealed the donations this afternoon

Asked whether dealing with the findings would include evacuating other buildings, Mr Javid said: "Whatever they tell us is necessary to make those people safe, there can be no shortcuts to this".

Mr Khan has demanded an interim report to be published this summer and for the inquiry to examine whether the block was refurbished safely.

The first victim of the tragedy was named Thursday by the Syria Solidarity Campaign as Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali.

Widespread appeals continue for those lost since the fire, including children such as 12-year-old Jessica Urbano, and whole families, including Rania Ibrahim and her two daughters Fathia, five, and Hania, three.

The confirmed death toll in London's Grenfell Tower fire has risen to 30 amid fears that it will soar significantly as a large number of people are still uncounted for.

But unlike opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn and London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who was confronted by a young boy asking, "How many children died?", May did not meet with residents and this struck locals, commentators and fellow Conservative party members as insensitive.

The government on Thursday set up an emergency fund to allow the local authorities to deal with the disaster.

Families searching for their loved ones have blanketed the area near the tower with posters searching for answers, and sorrow is quickly turning to anger over whether recent building works were properly done.

Authorities have said it is too soon for speculation into the cause of the fire.

"If so, please drop to Richard Healey Removals Ltd today or tomorrow morning and we will deliver to London to those who need it".

"Everyone affected by this tragedy needs reassurance that the Government is there for them at this bad time - and that is what I am determined to provide". The process will be very long. Police were unsure whether they would even be able to identify everyone.

May promised to hold a public inquiry into the fire, expressing her sorrow in a televised statement after meeting with the emergency services.

Javid said inspections of similar buildings had been ordered, with particular attention to the modern cladding used to beautify and add an insulation layer to ageing concrete and steel structures.

"The investigation will look into what criminal offences may have been committed", Cundy said.

According to The Guardian, more than 5,000 missing person calls have been made to the police casualty bureau so far. It is been reported that 76 are still missing.

More than 1 million pounds ($1.27 million) has been raised to help victims of the fire. "We like to think of ourselves as "roughty, toughty" and heroes - they are heroes - but they have feelings, and people were absolutely devastated by yesterday's events".

Earlier May visited the scene of the disaster in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Firefighters trying to race into the building were protected from the falling debris by police officers who placed riot shields over their heads.
