Relatives Of London Fire Victims Unleash Their Fury Upon Theresa May

British police say 58 people are missing and presumed to have died in this week's blaze at a west London highrise apartment building.

Families of the victims and residents of Grenfell said they were furious that the local government had for years ignored their complaints about the building's lack of measures in case of fire and had not adequately attended to survivors of the blaze. It is feared many are trapped inside the blazing building as the fire broke out in the wee hours of Wednesday.

"As soon as we can, we will locate and recover loved ones", he added.

This included the 30 already confirmed dead, according to Commander Stuart Cundy.

"We are grateful to the Prime Minister for listening to us and for the assurances she has given us but now we need to see real action and immediate results with centralised coordination of the relief effort with residents closely involved".

Prime Minister Theresa May had to virtually flee the church she visited in order to meet survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire, which has killed 30 people and injured scores of others.

A team of civil servants has been embedded in the Council office after residents complained they had been left with little support or information from officials, the BBC reported. "He didn't come with a bunch of one even saw her". "As Prime Minister, I will be responsible for implementing its findings".

"We're all desperately sad, we're all angry, but of course none of us as angry as those who were directly affected, " Green said. "Again, I would urge them if that is you, I don't care the reason, please, please contact us".

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William have also met with residents who were affected by the fire. Earlier in the day, the 91-year-old monarch described the country's mood as "somber" but insisted that Britain remained resolute during a hard time. Before that, Britons had been hit with three terrorist attacks in less than three months, in London and Manchester.

"It is hard to escape a very somber national mood", Elizabeth said in a message. "The country has witnessed a succession of awful tragedies".

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