Minute's silence to be held for Grenfell Tower victims

London fire: Queen Elizabeth issues somber message after site visit

Meanwhile, victims, relatives and volunteers from the Grenfell Tower disaster have been meeting with Theresa May in Downing Street.

Grief over a London high-rise tower fire that killed dozens turned to outrage Friday amid reports that the materials used in a recent renovation of the public housing block may have fueled the inferno.

After making the journey from their Hounslow home, Mr Lindsey said he was "cut up" when his son said he wanted to give his cash to the victims.

The GRT said 50 families, who wished to work with the authorities, have been given a key worker today.

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

Local councils will also carry out safety checks on buildings similar to the Grenfell Tower, the prime minister said.

Hundreds of anti-government protesters also marched in central London late Friday, as the issue galvanized left-wing activists already angered by cuts to welfare and social services under the Conservative government.

Opponents said May's handling of the fire had thrust her position further into doubt by showing a failure to feel the public mood and act decisively.

"Sadly, at this time there are 58 people who we have been told were in the Grenfell Tower on the night that are missing".

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", Elizabeth said in a message on her official birthday. A team of senior detectives is investigating. No sprinkler system was installed.

The fire and rescue service cited "the short term risk of debris falling onto the track".

While the political fallout from the tragedy grows, the names of those who died are beginning to emerge.

One was Gloria Trevisan, 26, an Italian architect living in London because her family was having financial difficulties at home in Italy. "I will help you from up there".

Alhajali, who lived on the 14th floor, was a civil engineering student at West London University.

"As a effect the group wishes to point out to you that should a major fire tragedy, with loss of life, occur between now and 2017, in for example, a residential care facility or a objective built block of flats, where the matters which had been raised here, were found to be contributory to the outcome, then the group would be bound to bring this to others' attention".

The Prime Minister has since set a three-week deadline for everybody affected to be rehoused locally, and called for more staff wearing high-visibility jackets to be deployed to the area, to ensure they can be easily found. But in an interview about the fire, May ducked the questions.

"There is little or no requirement to mitigate external fire spread".
