London fire: Death toll rises to 58

London police said Saturday that the death toll from the inferno at the Grenfell Tower in west London had risen to 58.

Mr Cundy vowed police "will get to the answer of what has happened and why", adding: "If criminal offences have been committed it is us who will investigate that". The presumed dead includes 30 people authorities previously confirmed perished in the Wednesday morning blaze at the public housing complex. The figure of 30 which I gave yesterday is the number that I know, sadly, have at least died. Stuart Cundy said in a statement.

Some footage from inside the tower may be released tomorrow to show the difficulties fire crews are facing, Cundy said at the press conference.

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.

As London Fire and Rescue Service continued their search of the building, looking for victims, the outpouring of grief mixed with anger grew.

Local residents also say they are angry that their safety concerns had been ignored and that people had been told to stay in their flats in the event of a fire.

British Prime Minister Theresa met the families of the victims on Saturday and assured them a total compensation of $6.4 million for emergency costs and for finding homes in nearby locations within three weeks, according to Bloomberg.

White House: Trump won't sack special counsel Robert Mueller
Investigators are also seeking to learn whether any Trump campaign associates colluded with Russian officials in the meddling. According to one source, Mueller sees the obstruction claims as more than just "he said, he said" between Trump and Comey.

The PM had earlier visited Chelsea and Westminster Hospital to meet staff and patients who were caught up in the fire. Residents in other blocks with the same exterior cladding as Grenfell Tower were concerned, he wrote.

Writing in the Observer, Sadiq Khan said it may well be the "defining outcome of this tragedy that the worst mistakes" of that era become a thing of the past.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", she said in a message marking the event.

"It has been decided today that the public inquiry will report back to me personally", May said.

"All I can say is to my certain knowledge the council, councillors, volunteers, community groups, officers of the council, have been present in North Kensington since very soon after they were notified that the fire had started".

Queen Elizabeth II said the disaster had cast a sombre pall over Britain, but insisted the country was showing resolve in the face of adversity.

"Contractor says that he met all the fire safety standards but the questions are going to be, which kind of siding was used and what were the risks?"

Previously, the Metropolitan Police had confirmed 30 people had been killed in the inferno; the announcement Saturday almost doubles that number.

The tragedy has provoked a huge response from nearby communities that have donated food and shelter to the victims.

At least 70 people, including children and entire families, have been reported missing following the fire.

The 91-year-old monarch said it is "difficult to escape a very somber mood" on what is normally a day of celebration.

"This should not be happening in the United Kingdom, this should never happen".

But public anger has been swelling, with furious residents heckling May and storming the local authority headquarters on Friday.
