London (Mckoy’s News) – London Fire: Protests Grow, Fire Anger Increases: Protests are being held in London as residents demand support for those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
Between 50 and 60 people stormed Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall as members of the public said the homeless needed help “right now”.
Crowds gathered outside a hall where PM Theresa May met survivors and protests have also been held at Downing Street.
Mrs May has sanctioned £5m for clothes, food and emergency supplies while the death toll has risen to at least 30.
The BBC understands those missing could number about 70, with the 30 likely to be among that number. Three of those who died have been identified.
There was nothing to suggest the fire was started deliberately, police said.
The fire broke out shortly before 01:00 BST on Wednesday.
It tore through all floors of the building and took more than 200 firefighters 24 hours to bring it under control.
Mahad Egal, who escaped his fourth floor flat with his family, said: “At first it seemed it was controllable, but really quickly the fire started to rise as the cladding caught fire. It is incredible we survived.”
Emergency services are now spending a third day searching for bodies in the burnt-out Grenfell Tower in North Kensington.
