Moment of silence for London fire victims

Moment of silence for London fire victims”

"Yesterday afternoon following expert advice for the safety of our officers, from the Metropolitan Police the London fire brigade and the London Ambulance arrive, we had to pause that search and recovery". The 24-story tower that once housed up to 600 people in 120 apartments is now a charred ruin.

Officials and UK Chancellor Philip Hammond have indicated that the external rain-screen cladding believed to be the cause of the rapid spread of the fire at the Grenfell Tower may have been banned under building regulations in the UK. Attention has focused on materials used during the renovation process completed a year ago. "That 58 would include that 30", he told reporters here.

"We are grateful to the Prime Minister for listening to us and for the assurances she has given us but now we need to see real action and immediate results with centralised coordination of the relief effort with residents closely involved".

David Lammy said Sunday he is anxious that documents will be quietly deleted and disposed of as police begin a search for evidence.

The leading body for town and city councils in England and Wales announced Friday it is to conduct an urgent review of fire safety in high-rise buildings in the wake of the Grenfell Tower blaze.

Writing in the Observer newspaper, Khan says it may well be the "defining outcome of this tragedy that the worst mistakes" of that era become a thing of the past.

Over the past few days, another five people who had been reported missing in the fire have been found to be safe and well, Cundy said, saying he's "so grateful" for the news. He has not provided details about the inquiry.

The 91-year-old monarch said that Britain remains "resolute in the face of adversity" after the horrendous fire and recent extremist attacks in London and Manchester.

They say their complaints were ignored - and fear it was because the tower was full of poor people in a hugely wealthy neighborhood.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May admitted that support for families in the "initial hours" was "not good enough".

Residents who met Mrs May in Downing Street over the weekend said while they welcomed the funding they had not been consulted before the announcement was made.

"I believe there may be people who were in Grenfell Tower that people may not know are missing and may not have realised they were in there on the night", he said.

Miguel Alves complained "many times" about construction tools blocking the exits.

Residents said the government response was too little, too late. "Unfortunately they were not listened".
