London firefighters are continuing the grim search after a high-rise fire that killed at least 30 people as public anger about the blaze continues to grow.
On the figure of 58, he said: "I really hope it won't, but it may increase", while adding that "it might be that some of those are safe and well", and for some reason, had not yet made themselves known to the police.
He also said that there was no evidence that the fire was started deliberately. "United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favour, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss", she said. We know that there are still bodies of those who died inside the building and we want to return those people to their families as soon as we possibly can.
Commander Mr Cundy said: "Sadly, our work will be ongoing for many, many weeks". "What I'm now absolutely focused on is ensuring that we get that support on the ground", Mrs May said in a BBC Newsnight interview.
But the Conservative leader still struggled to overcome accusations that she lacked compassion because she had failed to meet with victims on her first visit to the devastated site.
Grief is turning to outrage in the wake of London's deadly Grenfell Tower apartment block fire, with British Prime Minister Theresa May confronted by protesters and a crowd of angry locals storming the local town hall. "The government and ministers will cooperate fully", she said, according to The Telegraph. With the death toll rising, families of the victims have railed against officials like May and Mayor Sadiq Khan. More than $3.8 million has been raised for the victims.
"The bad news, I'm afraid, is lots of people died in the fire". There are a lot of fearless firefighters and police and ambulance workers. British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn proposed putting some of them up in empty luxury homes owned by wealthy residents of the area - which is a fairly affluent neighborhood.
Mohammed, whose apartment is opposite the tower, had friends who lived in Grenfell's upper stories. May was criticised for not meeting with the victims and those displaced by the fire, with the offical line from her office claiming it was due to " safety concerns".
"The reason for that - at one point, in terms of our casualty bureau, there were 400 people who were reported missing from Grenfell Tower".
