Adele visits Grenfell Tower firefighters and offers 'tea and a cuddle'

Two British officials said Sunday that new exterior cladding used in a renovation of Grenfell Tower may have been banned under United Kingdom building regulations, reported the Associated Press.

Some residents have also accused authorities of concealing the "true" death toll.

Commander Stuart Cundy said his priority was to identify the people who died in the building and to remove them as quickly as possible.

So, President Trump isn't under investigation after all?
POTUS's legal team made clear to news reporters that the president is not under investigation for obstruction of justice. Meanwhile, it is no secret that there are both Senate and House committees that are investigating the President.

Despite the struggles fire fighters face in their efforts to identify victims of the North Kensington blaze, Mr Cundy insisted that the search operation will go on.

As anger continued in the wake of the disaster, described by London mayor Sadiq Khan as a "preventable accident", the government announced on Sunday that those left homeless will be given at least £5,500 (€6,300) from an emergency fund. Many residents were trapped inside as a massive fire engulfed the building in less than 30 minutes, making it one of Britain's deadliest fires in decades.

Of those who were due to have been rehomed, the GRT said they would be living in Kensington and Chelsea or a neighbouring borough.

Mr Cundy would not be drawn on the specifics of the criminal investigation, including whether anyone had been arrested or raids carried out.

An additonal 70 people are reportedly missing.

"[There] have been years of neglect, absolutely decades and generations of neglect by this Tory council", he said. "For three weeks I have to come here with the children and wash ourselves?"

The PM has ordered a public inquiry into the blaze, as the cladding used to insulate the tower block and the building's safety measures have come under scrutiny.

Five victims have been formally identified, including 23-year-old Mohammed Alhajali and a woman whose family do not want her name to be released.

"Only when we have investigated fully and properly will I be able to say what happened and why - to speculate now would be simply wrong".
