Rachel Lucas from 5 News wrote on Twitter: "Theresa May leaves St Clements Church as angry protests charge her vehicle".

The Whitehall protest coincided with a meeting between Prime Minister Theresa May and members of some of the families affected by the Grenfell Tower fire, but the protesters carried placards and chanted slogans on a number of issues, including the proposed Tory-DUP coalition deal, concerns over Brexit and austerity measures.

The Prime Minister had come under attack for visiting the scene of the disaster on Thursday but not meeting survivors or residents.

Meagher added that she probably did take advice on the matter from special advisors, but "a lot of special advisors are not actually very special and get things like this hideously wrong".

Nadir, 24, who has friends in Grenfell Tower, said: "At least she (Theresa May) could've met the victims, (Jeremy) Corbyn was a good man. he came and met the people".

"No one is going to bring them back but this could have been solved a long, long time ago".

"I don't think it's appropriate to be talking about whether people have humanity or not", Ms Leadsom said, saying that a feeling of shock and sympathy had pervaded the whole parliament. "There's not even sprinklers in there", the man added. What has changed since then?

"I mean, it's too late to be honest, right now".

Nadir said: "I'm angry at the state of the tower. Because of people saving money, people are dying".

According to the Daily Record, the writing is on the wall for Prime Minister Theresa May.

"People are angry, and rightfully so".

"What we need to do is to get a grip of this and make sure we are meeting their immediate needs as well as their ongoing needs and that is really the priority for Government". The PM was criticized by locals, fellow politicians and the public at large for only meeting with emergency services personnel and not showing her face in any of the rescue centers.

Speaking on BBC Question Time that evening, Defense Minister Tobias Ellwood said "security concerns" had prevented the prime minister from meeting victims of the blaze which killed 30 and injured many more.

Labour former deputy leader Harriet Harman said it was "not OK" for the Prime Minister to go to the area but not meet residents, and called on her to invite them to talk to her in Downing Street, as victims of the 2009 Lakanal House fire were.
