London fire: 58 missing presumed dead

British Labour MP David Lammy called for arrests to be made over what he labelled "corporate manslaughter", lambasting Britain's public housing crisis which he says has left towers like Grenfell in appalling condition.

At least 58 people were likely killed in a fire which engulfed a London tower block earlier this week, police said on Saturday.

"From a personal perspective, I really hope it isn't", Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Cundy said responding to speculation reported in The Telegraph and other media outlets that the number of dead could exceed 100.

Asked if there were angry exchanges, Tomlin said: "We tried to hold it well as a meeting".

He said there may have been people in the tower that police are not aware of, which would add to the death toll.

The star batsman added: "Going into a big game like this, we're going to treat it as how we treated the last game. And having watched the game against Sri Lanka , we actually didn't think it was that bad.

On Saturday afternoon 58 people were confirmed to be missing, presumed dead.

May was criticised for avoiding locals when she visited the disaster site on Thursday and faced cries of "Shame on you" and "coward" when she returned the following day, with police breaking up scuffles. They also complained that May's visit to the neighborhood was too slow and that support was lacking for those who lost relatives and homes.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", the queen said in a statement to mark her official birthday - an occasion that typically does not result in any public comments from the monarch.

"We've worked tirelessly to establish how many people we believe were in Grenfell Tower on the night and at this point in time we are unable to say that they are safe or well", he said. "Wherever we can, we will bring people to justice if there is evidence". "We need answers and we need answers now", another man said through a megaphone.

Earlier on Saturday, Mrs May chaired a Government task force on the disaster.

Told there was a need for the public to hear her say something had gone badly wrong and the Government accepted responsibility, Mrs May said: "Something awful has happened".

She has also pledged £5 million (S$8.8 million) of support, housing guarantees and help with access to bank accounts and cash.

Dozens of people gathered outside of the church, waiting to ambush May as she exited a side door. "The Prime Minister is distraught about what has happened", said Mr Green, who was appointed Mrs May's deputy in the wake of the election. "Sadly, we do not expect any survivors".

She added: "I have ordered that more staff be deployed across the area, wearing high visibility clothing, so they can easily be found, dispense advice and ensure the right support is provided".
