Protesters storm town hall as anger grows over London fire

The reason for that - at one point, in terms of our casualty bureau, there were 400 people who were reported missing from Grenfell Tower.

The 1974 building recently had external aluminum cladding installed, which is highly flammable. Some Grenfell residents had warned months ago fire safety issues at the tower meant that it was at risk of a "catastrophic" event.

Anger has focused over the cladding used to cover its surface.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so numerous tower's 600-odd residents.

More protesters took to central London before marching on Downing Street calling for the authorities to do more after dozens lost their lives in the inferno.

The city is already in a tough spot over this apartment building, as residents have filed many complaints about their safety concerns, including a lack of a sprinkler system, and received no results.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William visited with people affected by the fire Friday at a makeshift gathering place to counsel friends and relatives. May returned to the neighbourhood the following day to meet with survivors at St.

"He knocked on the door and he said there was a fire in his flat".

"That's one of the most awful things I have ever seen", Prince William said of the tower's blackened shell. "There was no alarm".

Scotland Yard has launched a criminal inquiry into the fire as it has emerged that the type of cladding panels used on the building have been widely prohibited on tall structures in the US since 2012 because of its flammability.

Meanwhile, Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Cundy responded to speculation that the number of dead could exceed 100, saying: "From a personal perspective, I really hope it isn't".

Mr Cundy promised there will be prosecutions "if there is evidence" that criminal offences have been committed. "That's why you do an investigation". They are furious that people still are missing and that the local government hasn't done enough to help them in the aftermath. "We will continue to look at what more needs to be done".

He also said survivors from the tower would be re-housed in the local area.

He also said the last flames had finally been put out, two days after the fire broke out in the night between Tuesday and Wednesday in the 24-storey tower in a working-class enclave of the wealthy London borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

"Residents are very angry and concerned", he said.

The Queen, who on Friday visited some of the surviving residents of Grenfell Tower, said she had been "profoundly struck by the immediate inclination of people throughout the country to offer comfort and support to those in desperate need".
