More than 70 people reportedly remain unaccounted for and the area surrounding the tower has been plastered by distraught relatives with pictures of the missing, from grandparents to young children.

"It is hard to escape a very sombre national mood", Elizabeth, the world's oldest and longest-reigning monarch, said in a message on her official birthday.

"I understand, I really do understand the fears of so many about not knowing the scale of the tragedy that is unfolding behind us", said Cundy.

Grenfell fire survivors were "angry" and "passionate" during a meeting with Theresa May, as their harrowing accounts moved her to well up, say people who were present.

"You have my absolute assurance that as soon as I can tell you something that I know to be accurate I will tell you".

Perez's opponents have criticised reforms in the club statutes which have toughened criteria for aspiring candidates. De Gea has continued to be linked with Real but Perez said: "For the time being, we haven't spoken to De Gea".

Cundy also mentioned that his "heart goes out to those affected".

He said it had been "incredibly emotional working in there", adding: "On Saturday I went in myself and went to the top floor". Their search for missing residents has been stalled because of safety concerns over the tower's condition.

Mr Green said the Government expected to appoint a chairman to lead the public inquiry "in days rather than weeks".

Services on the London Tube railway line that runs above ground close to the tower were suspended Saturday due to the "short-term risk of some debris falling onto the tracks", London Fire Brigade said. It may take longer than that.

"We want it to be able to have interim reports as well", he added. She then released a statement.

Despite still going along with the events of the day, there is no doubt that the recent Grenfell Tower fire still weighs heavy on the Queen and Prince William. She addressed worries that victim's voices "will not be heard".

The comments came as former chief fire officer Ronnie King told the Observer newspaper that urgent requests for meetings with ministers and action to tighten rules were stonewalled.

However, there was unhappiness that the Prime Minister's visit to victims came more than 48 hours after the disaster.

The government has promised a full public inquiry. The inquiry will be open and transparent.

He said: "I thought the way they expressed themselves with a mixture of passion and reason was fantastic, and I hope it's the beginning of a process, not the end of a process, the beginning of a process of real listening between Government, RBKC (the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council), local residents, that will bring about lasting change".

Witnesses alleged he tried to escape after the attack, shouting: "I want to kill Muslims - you deserve it", and "I did my bit". Attendance has greatly increased since then among worshippers from various communities, according to the mosque's website.

"At No 10 yesterday, the Prime Minister assured the group that from now on residents would be consulted on a coordinated relief effort".
