British PM May tries to quell public anger after deadly London fire

She has also pledged $6.4 million in support to the residents and promised that those who lost their homes would be relocated within three weeks.

He added that teams and families of missing loved ones must prepare for "the bad reality" that some of those who died in the fire may never be identified due to the intensity of the fire.

He said only five people had been formally identified so far by police, after officers earlier warned that some may never be identified due to the condition of the remains.

A representative of the families who met with May and spoke to reporters briefly after leaving 10th Downing Street said "we will be making this in the community, with the community".

Protesters stand in the lobby of Kensington town hall in west London, the headquarters of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, demanding answers over the Grenfell Tower fire, in London, Friday June 16, 2017. "It might be that some of those are safe and well but for whatever reason have not reached (out) to let us know".

A "Grenfell Fire Response Team", pooling resources from local and national government, the British Red Cross, police and fire brigade is also being set up, to focus primarily on finding new homes for survivors as quickly as possible.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered a judge-led full public inquiry into the incident.

Meanwhile, the government announced that those displaced by the massive blaze will be given the equivalent of at least $7,000 from an emergency fund.

In a blog post written past year, the Grenfell Action Group warned of "dangerous living conditions" in the tower. It is feared many are trapped inside the blazing building as the fire broke out in the wee hours of Wednesday.

Mr Magee said he can remember hearing residents screaming - including children.

Representative Scalise's condition upgraded to 'serious' after shooting
Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican , arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding, Sava said. The doctors said that while Scalise remains in critical condition, they "are encouraged by improvement in his condition".

Her failure to win a majority in an election she did not need to call had already sparked a tumultuous week and pitched Britain into its deepest political crisis since the Brexit referendum a year ago.

The criticism over the blaze has added to pressure on May who is trying to strike a deal with a Northern Irish party to stay in power.

"That's why she totally accepted that it (the government response) hadn't been good enough. I mourn the tragic loss of a wonderful young woman". "You have to be prepared to receive people's emotions, and not be so frightened about people", former Conservative cabinet minister Michael Portillo told the BBC.

However, public anger has swollen over the disaster, with furious residents heckling May and storming the local authority headquarters on Friday.

"The local community feels their grief has been made worse by the lack of information about their missing family members and friends", he wrote.

Earlier, a sign at a Tube station said that the service suspension was because of the "safety" of nearby Grenfell Tower, suggesting structural concerns.

"People are terrified that the same thing could happen to them", said Khan.

PM Theresa May was criticised for this visit, where she only met with emergency workers.

"I was in there myself and went all the way to the top floor and it is incredibly hard", he said, before pausing as tears welled up in his eyes.

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy asserted that their investigation will "establish the facts and provide answers", as they "look into what criminal offences may have been committed".
