Grenfell Tower families to receive minimum of £5500 from No 10

20 June 2017

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Theresa May has been criticized for her slowness in visiting the victims of the fire - her visits took place more than 48 hours after the fire broke out - and refusal to answer questions about government oversights that might have increased the deadly nature of the blaze.

Police Commander Stuart Cundy says police will seek criminal prosecutions if the evidence warrants.

May later announced that the public inquiry looking into the tragedy will report directly to her, the AP said.

The Home Office said late Saturday night it will make arrangements for the family of Mohammad Alhajali to "travel to the these terribly sad circumstances".

The meeting came one day after May was chastised by protesters as she visited near the scene of the blaze. "I've said before one of my absolute priorities is to identify people as quick as we can, to recover them from Grenfell Tower".

A lawyer for the family told CNN that Trevisan spoke with her parents before she died, telling them: "I am going to heaven".

So, the residents are saying that the final death toll could be much higher than the figure what British authorities are giving.

'The identification process as I've explained before is to worldwide disaster identification standards meaning we are relying on dental records, finger prints or DNA.

The 91-year-old monarch said that Britain remains "resolute in the face of adversity" after the horrendous fire and recent extremist attacks in London and Manchester.

Criticism of May intensified Friday after she sidestepped questions in a televised interview about whether she had underestimated the public's anger and frustration. "This year, however, it is hard to escape a very somber national mood". The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, stood silently on the steps of Buckingham Palace before the start of the Trooping the Color ceremony that each year marks the queen's official birthday, which is traditionally celebrated in June when the weather is warm. Hundreds have been left homeless, putting more pressure on officials in a city plagued by a chronic housing shortage.

The extensive use of fire-resistant glass panels on the building's exterior could prevent fire from spreading upward quickly.

The PM has ordered a public inquiry into the blaze, as the cladding used to insulate the tower block and the building's safety measures have come under scrutiny.

The pay-outs were recorded, as of lunchtime on Monday, by the newly set-up Grenfell Response Team (GRT) which is now managing the official response and support operation to the tragedy. More than 3 million pounds ($3.8 million) have been raised for the victims.

Residents affected by the Grenfell Tower atrocity were passionate and angry during a lengthy exchange with the Prime Minister, a bishop who sat with them revealed.

In the fire's aftermath, the London Underground on Saturday suspended subway service between Edgware Road and Hammersmith on two lines at the request of the London Fire Brigade.
