United Kingdom government scrambles to limit fallout from London fire

Danilo Martir | 19 Junio, 2017, 12:34

The 24-storey tower that once housed up to 600 people in 120 apartments is now a charred ruin.

Kensington and Chelsea Council leader Nicholas Paget-Brown said he understood residents' anger and that the authority itself wanted to know why the fire had started and spread so quickly.

"We must also prepare people for the awful reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire", he added.

Earlier, writing in the Observer, Mr Khan had suggested that high-rise tower blocks dating from the 1960s and 1970s could be torn down in the wake of the fire, which he said may well be the "defining outcome of this tragedy".

Police have released photos showing the destruction inside Grenfell Tower while warning that the presumed death toll could rise above 58.

Police are expected to announce an increase in that number on Monday.

The images released by police were taken by a recovery team inside flats where everyone inside has been accounted for.

Surprising Hot ETF Following the Fed Rate Hike
Meanwhile, the rate of inflation over the past 12 months has slowed to 1.9% in May from 2.7% just in February. Fed expected USA unemployment to end the year at 4.3 per cent instead of its previous 4.5 per cent forecast.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Sunday after attending a church service several blocks from the tower that the fatal blaze was entirely preventable.

"There is a feeling from the community that they've been treated badly because some of them are poor, some of them may come from deprived backgrounds, some of them may be asylum seekers and refugees".

Families who have lost their homes must be supported, he said, grieving people must be helped and lessons must be learned following the tragedy, including ensuring it is not "so hard" for those who need help to find it.

Public anger is mounting as residents and neighbors demand answers for how the blaze early Wednesday spread so quickly and trapped so numerous tower's 600-odd residents.

The government has set up a £5 million emergency fund for the Grenfell Tower residents, allocating a minimum £5,500 to each household with £500 cash payments already being handed out.

Residents who met Theresa May in Downing Street on Saturday said that while they welcomed the funds, they had not been consulted before the announcement was made. In parallel, the police are seeking to identify if any criminal offences had been committed.

Meanwhile, UK Finance Minister Philip Hammond said on Sunday that the outer wall covering on the Grenfell Tower, known as cladding, is banned in the UK.

He also cited testimony from first responders who saw Castile's gun in his pocket as he was loaded onto a backboard. After Yanez activated his flashing lights, Castile stopped near a squat apartment building and row of trees.

"That will be a subject that the inquiry will look at".

The shadow Brexit Secretary, who is also the former Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), revealed prosecutors were now part of the investigation.

Father's Day cards were among the tributes left close to the blackened shell of the tower on Sunday.

One photo shows a burnt-out elevator on an undisclosed floor of the public housing project that was ravaged in Wednesday's inferno, while another shows an apartment that was reduced to rubble and white ash.

British officials say they are helping the Syrian family of the first officially confirmed victim of the London tower blaze - 23-year-old Mohammad Alhajali - to "travel to the these terribly sad circumstances".

Omar - who was with his brother in the flat - survived the fire after they were separated on the way out.

Commander Cundy furthermore highlighted: "Our investigation will be wide ranging and exhaustive - it will seek to find out if any crimes have been committed and if so make sure that we do all we can to bring any person responsible to justice".
