"I was told that an elderly Irish gentleman was identified with the assistance of his Claddagh ring", Mr Kingston said.

Forensic experts said the fire at Grenfell was so hot it could be compared to a cremation, which is going to make it hard to identify those who lost their lives.

"We like to think of ourselves as roughty-tufty and as heroes but they have feelings". Cundy said emergency workers have now reached the top of the building.

A woman touches a poster for 12-year-old Jessica Urbano on a tribute wall Friday after laying flowers on the side of a church next to the Grenfell Tower in London.

"We have colleagues in there as we speak, searching for and recovering those that have died".

Several people appeared to clash with security guards inside the building before more than 20 police officers restored order.

"It will go to establish the answers of what happened in the fire and how it spread; it will look at the building itself; it will look at the refurbishment as well".

"We are not stupid, we're aware people are dead".

YouGov asked 5,321 United Kingdom adults on June 16, 2017: "Jeremy Corbyn has called for luxury properties in Kensington that are owned but left empty to be requisitioned and provided as accommodation for Grenfell Tower residents who have been made homeless by the fire". "There were people we spoke to who were housed for one night, didn't know where they'd spend the next night, had no money to spend on food, and were not told anything by anyone, no one was in charge". British health authorities say that 19 patients are still being treated at four London hospitals.

Ms May, who was criticised a day earlier for not meeting with locals and survivors, visited the area again on Friday to meet with some locals inside a church.

The Queen has acknowledged a "very sombre national mood" in a message sent out for her official birthday.

Trump confirms he is being investigated over Comey firing
But soon after the abrupt termination, Trump told NBC News that he had been going to fire Comey regardless of any recommendations. A close Trump associate said this week the president was considering firing Mueller, although the White House later denied it.


To which the prime minister answered: "This was a bad tragedy that took place, people have lost their lives and others have lost everything, all their possessions, their home and everything, what we are doing is putting in place the support that will help them".

After a turbulent three months which has seen Britain scarred by three deadly Islamist militant attacks and now the tower blaze, Queen Elizabeth said the mood was deeply sombre but that the British people were resolute in the face of adversity. "United in our sadness, we are equally determined, without fear or favor, to support all those rebuilding lives so horribly affected by injury and loss".

It is the sense of negligence, that the lives of the poor are not worthy of the same protection as the rich, that is fuelling the anger in London's streets.

The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, stood silently on the steps of Buckingham Palace before the start of the Trooping the Color that each year marks the queen's official birthday, which is traditionally celebrated in June when the weather is warm.

Dozens of police officers held back booing crowds and broke up scuffles as her vehicle drove off from a local church, where she had met survivors, residents and volunteers.

Protesters marched to the edge of the police cordon around the tower, shouting "no justice, no peace", where a few young men tried unsuccessfully to break through.

"It was murder" said the front page of The Sun; "May takes cover" said The Times; "Inferno: the anger erupts", said the Daily Mail. She has promised to set up a public inquiry and pledged 5 million pounds ($6.40 million) to help the victims.

"The Prime Minister is distraught about what has happened", said Green, who was appointed May's deputy in the wake of the general election.

May replied: "What I have done today is ensured that we are as a government putting that funding in place for people in the area, this has been an absolutely terrifying experience".

A criminal investigation has been launched into the incident, as questions mount about what role the installation of new cladding played in the fire, which rapidly engulfed the building's 120 units.
