United Kingdom government scrambles to limit fallout from London fire

United Kingdom government scrambles to limit fallout from London fire

Another photograph shows two elevators blackened by smoke - with Commander Stuart Cundy warning: "We must prepare people for the bad reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire".

His comments today came after residents who met the prime minister criticised estate managers as having been "invisible in the aftermath of the tragedy" with the exception of a "very few junior officers".

"That's one of the most awful things I have ever seen", William said of the tower's blackened shell.

The cause of Wednesday's blaze is still under investigation, but anger has mounted in the community amid reports that exterior paneling used in an extensive renovation completed a year ago may have been banned by United Kingdom rules.

He warned that a full forensic and systematic search will take weeks to complete, adding: "We must also prepare people for the awful reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire".

Tailored bereavement support for families of the victims, those missing or people affected by the tragedy will also be provided.

Trump not under investigation in Russia probe
Sekulow said Trump would address the issue of the tapes - whose very existence is unclear - in the "week ahead". Attorney Jay Sekulow is stressing that "the president has not been and is not under investigation".

It includes 30 deaths that already have been confirmed, and reports of people who are missing and presumed to have been killed.

A criminal investigation has been launched after which Theresa May has said there will be a public inquiry - but victims and campaigning are calling for an inquest which is independent of the government and has more powers to investigate.

The move follows widespread criticism of the local Kensington and Chelsea Council's performance as residents of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower, which was engulfed in fire early on Wednesday, condemned the relief efforts and lack of information.

"And I've got to say some of the stories that I've heard will stay with me forever".

It was reported that the material used in the cladding covering Grenfell was Reynobond PE - a cheaper, more flammable version of two available options. "At this time, we are not aware of any link between the fire and the exterior cladding to the tower".

The International Building Code calls for structures taller than 12 metres to use fire-resistant material.

Paul After Cop Who Killed Philando Castile Is Acquitted
A U.S. court has acquitted a police officer who shot dead an unarmed black man which was broadcast by his girlfriend on Facebook . Prosecutor John Choi, who made the decision to charge Yanez, said although he was disappointed, the verdict "must be respected".

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

On Saturday night, the Government announced new measures to support those who have lost loved ones, along with members of the emergency services.

May, who on Thursday met emergency services at the fire site but did not meet locals, visited residents, volunteers and community leaders at a nearby church on Friday and was rushed away afterwards by police as an angry crowd outside shouted "Coward" and "You're not wanted". And obviously that will be a subject that the (public) inquiry will look at. They say their complaints were ignored - and fear it was because the tower was full of poor people in a hugely wealthy neighbourhood.

"I've heard stories of heroism, from Christians, from Muslims and from others, looking after their brothers and sisters, their neighbours and doing the job that we expect from this brilliant community because of the fantastic community that is here in this part of London".

Queen Elizabeth II, spoke Saturday of the sombre mood sweeping the nation following the attacks in London and Manchester and the fire that swept this week through Grenfell Tower in west London.
