The fire has left the building nearly completely charred, and there were concerns about the tower's structural integrity, as it appeared to lean slightly to one side.

"(This aims) to give the victims the immediate support they need to care for themselves and for loved ones", May said.

After her visit, Mrs May said: "Everyone affected by this tragedy needs reassurance that the Government is there for them at this bad time - and that is what I am determined to provide".

"We have identified those buildings and now and over the weekend people are going in and inspecting those buildings".

Separately, hundreds of protesters stormed the local town hall chanting: "We want justice".

Mrs May arrived in Downing Street on Saturday where she is chairing the Government task force on the disaster.

Scotland Yard has opened a separate criminal investigation. More than 3 million pounds ($3.8 million) has been raised for the victims, and the British government has announced a 5 million-pound ($6.3 million) emergency fund.

He says while "current systems in place may work well for a terrorist attack, there are legitimate questions about whether they are still appropriate in situations where obtaining this information could take much longer". Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William met with volunteers who have been distributing supplies for those affected by the disaster.

Newly-appointed Indian-origin housing minister in the Department for Communities and Local Government, Alok Sharma, said, "Every single family will be rehoused in the local area". "Sadly, we do not expect any survivors". "I absolutely get why they're angry", Green said. While the deadly blaze at the Grenfell Tower in north Kensington has prompted an outpouring of generosity, it has also unleashed rage at the authorities as the charred tower was cast as a deadly symbol of a divided society.

The protesters barged their way through an automatic door at and sought to gain entry to an upper floor.

The Press Association has verified 54 other individuals as missing, according to multiple reports from friends, family and witnesses on the scene.

She said it was "difficult to escape a very sombre mood".

"The country has witnessed a succession of awful tragedies".

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

Such a direct message from the monarch is rare and indicated the extent of the turmoil in Britain.

"To this day the council has failed to do anything in public, they have not made a public statement or any public comment".

It has been feared that a protest march in London this evening could spark civil unrest, and even riots, but it appears that protesters have stormed Kensington Town Hall, demanding justice for the Grenfell Tower residents.

The Prime Minister is facing particular scrutiny over the role of her new chief of staff, Gavin Barwell, who served as housing minister until he lost his seat in last week's snap general election.

The criticism over the blaze has added to pressure on May who is trying to strike a deal with a Northern Irish party to stay in power.
