Moment of silence for London fire victims

Moment of silence for London fire victims

The cops and the rescue department have intensified their search and service dogs have also joined the grim search for bodies in Grenfell Tower which turned into ashes.

Cundy said the "complex" and "exhaustive" inquiry will focus on a range of issues including how the building was constructed, a recent refurbishment of it, how it is managed and maintained and fire safety measures.

Also, there was a huge chaos and confusion at the spot, as the residents woke up by sirens, screams and by the smell of acrid smoke.

In other developments, a company that renovated the tower denied that cladding on the building was banned in the United Kingdom after comments made by Chancellor Philip Hammond.

At least 79 people are missing, presumed dead, after the 24-storey block was incinerated, police said on Monday morning, adding that figure may change. Hands cautioned that officials don't yet have exact details about the renovation that ended just a year ago.

Greg Hands told Sky News that "my understanding is that the cladding that was reported was not in accordance with United Kingdom building regulations".

"We are grateful to the Prime Minister for listening to us and for the assurances she has given us but now we need to see real action and immediate results with centralised coordination of the relief effort with residents closely involved".

Police have said criminal prosecutors will be pursued if there is evidence of wrongdoing.

The MP called on the government to find and preserve all emails, meeting documents, correspondence with contractors, safety assessments, specifications and reports in order to withhold justice for the victims.

While he refused to speculate on the inquiry's outcome, Cundy said, "I would like to reassure everybody that we will be looking at all criminal offenses that may have been committed by any individual or organization".

Commander Stuart Cundy said five victims had been formally identified but would not give further details.

On Saturday, Mrs May acknowledged that support for survivors and families of the victims "was not good enough".

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said Sunday the government has the power to take over empty apartments and offer them to the hundreds of Grenfell Tower residents left homeless in Wednesday' inferno.

"We've worked tirelessly to establish how many people we believe were in Grenfell Tower on the night and at this point in time we are unable to say that they are safe or well", he said.
