Grief turns to anger in neighborhood near tower fire

She also pledged 5 million pounds of support, housing guarantees and help with access to bank accounts and cash.

Some desperate residents pleaded to speak to the queen and her grandson about their plight and the fate of missing children as they left the site, with William promising he would return.

At least 30 people died when fire broke out at the tower block in north Kensington shortly before 1am on Wednesday morning.

Previously, the Metropolitan Police had confirmed 30 people had been killed in the inferno; the announcement Saturday almost doubles that number. Officials have so far recovered 16 bodies.

Yesterday, the first victim of the fire was named as 23- year-old Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali.

A total of 24 people remain in hospital, with 12 in critical care.

"Sadly at this time there are 58 people who we were told were in Grenfell Tower on the night, who were missing, who I have to assume are dead".

"I have friends in the tower and they are not telling us anything", Salwa Buamani, 25, told AFP.

One furious resident told reporters: "I want her to come out her and face us".

"As the days go on we will be able to, with the agreement of the coroner, identify others who have died".

Theresa May was pictured visiting St Clement's Church as crowds surrounded the building. A memorial wall has been created for people to write messages to the missing.

Earlier this week she was criticised for not meeting members of the public when she visited Grenfell Tower in the aftermath of the disaster.

Protesters gathered to call for help for the residents of the burned building, and the BBC reports that dozens of people "stormed Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall with a list of demands".

He is hopeful the two-and-a-half hour meeting, attended by victims, residents, community leaders and volunteers, was the starting point for a process of "lasting change".

Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Cundy responded to fears that the number of dead could exceed 100 by saying: "I really hope it isn't".

Firefighters using drones and sniffer dogs continued to search the burned-out housing block, that looms over the low-income community in west London on Friday.

"It is very hard to find the words to express how those families affected must be feeling, and it is our job to work tirelessly to provide them with the answers they so richly deserve", Cundy said.
