Grenfell death toll put at 30 - but 69 people are still missing

Irune Rengel | 18 Junio, 2017, 22:33

At least 30 people were killed in the Grenfell tower fire, which trapped people in the 24-floor building on Wednesday morning.

It may take some time though, before the families of the victims know the fate of their loved ones.

The government has promised a full public inquiry, but that has done little to ease a sense of frustration at the lack of information about how the fire moved so quickly to engulf the building.

Overnight, 109 families made homeless from the blaze were housed at hotels in west London.

Britain's Press Association reported that some 70 people are still missing after the fire. Police barred their way and scuffles broke out.

It is the same church where the Prime Minister met a group of victims, residents, volunteers and community leaders on Friday, as an angry crowd outside directed shouts of "coward" and "shame on you" towards her. On Friday evening, May was interviewed by Emily Maitlis on the BBC programme "Newsnight" where she sidestepped questions over whether she misread the public mood and anger over the Grenfell fire as well as what her personal response is - leading to more criticism of being called "robotic" and "cold".

The PM has said the support for families was "not good enough" in the hours after the disaster.

Bill Cosby's jury wants to hear accuser's testimony again
In a transcript read in court, the comedian said, "I never meant to have sexual intercourse with Andrea". "She said she hadn't". Constand has denied Cosby's explanation , [ultimately] telling police, "We were not involved in any romantic relationship".

It later issued a statement saying "it would not be appropriate to comment on the cause of the fire".

"We stand with those who will learn these lessons in honest efforts to advance the aligned goals of life/safety and environmental building performance", said the statement attributed to Brendan Owens, an engineer and senior vice-president at the council.

Grenfell Tower is a public housing project owned by the local government council and managed by a non-profit known as the Kensington and Chelsea Tenants Management Organization.

The tower's aging concrete facade received the face-lift previous year as part of a 10 million pound ($13 million) publicly funded refurbishment effort aimed, in part, at making the building more energy efficient.

Britain is now likely to go into arduous talks on Monday about its exit from the European Union with a weakened leader who is dependent on a small Northern Irish party. Her government is also due to launch hard Brexit talks with the European Union on Monday.

May met police and firefighters at the West London site on Thursday, to receive a briefing from the emergency services. "They have been left with nothing - no bank cards, no money, no means of caring for their children or relatives".

Police say the harrowing search for remains had paused Friday because of safety concerns at the blackened tower but has resumed. "We need to make sure that actually happens", she said.

Aleksandr Samedov's corner found Viktor Vasin who saw his header hacked clear by Michael McGlinchey. Boxall admitted it "took the life out of us a bit" to gift the opening goal with a defensive error.

London's mayor Sadiq Khan was heckled by an angry crowd demanding answers, and there are fears that tensions could escalate.

Local residents say there had been repeated warnings about the safety of the building, which recently underwent an £8.7 million ($11.1 million) exterior refurbishment, which included new external cladding and windows.

However, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who was London mayor until previous year, took to Facebook to attack opposition Labour politicians for "political game playing".

Witnesses said the flames spread quickly up the building as most residents slept, and photographs later on Wednesday showed an nearly entirely blackened, smouldering shell.

London police said an investigation, led by a detective from its homicide and major crime unit, would examine whether criminal offences had been committed although they said there was nothing to suggest the fire was started deliberately.

Some residents are reportedly concerned that the real death toll hasn't been revealed for political reasons.
