May made a private visit to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital which is treating eight survivors on Friday afternoon, after being heavily criticized for attending the site but not meeting the Tower block's residents.

The local Grenfell Action Group had claimed, before and during a major 10-million-pound refurbishment of Grenfell Tower a year ago, that the block constituted a fire risk and residents had warned that access to the site for emergency vehicles was "severely restricted".

A man in the crowd commented: "What did she bring, what useful things did she bring? Are there other tower blocks across London and across the country that have that cladding?" Police barred their way and scuffles broke out, a Reuters reporter said.

Chancellor Philip Hammond said the cladding, which has been blamed for spreading the fire, is banned in Britain.

Instead, she said: "Something bad has happened".

Officials said Friday they are doing everything they can to relocate those displaced by the tower.

Later, dozens of people appeared to push and shove each other outside the town hall.

Protesters were called away from the foyer by protest organiser Mustafa Mansour, who urged calm.
