"In the wake of (the) Grenfell fire we have to recognise that something has gone badly, badly wrong in this country, that predominantly poor people die in a towering inferno because possibly in the long term (there had been a) lack of public investment", Corbyn told ITV's Peston on Sunday programme.

Britain has held a moment of silence for the 79 people who are believed to have died in the high-rise fire in West London.

Late Sunday, the Metropolitan Police released three photos from inside Grenfell Tower, which showed in close detail how the fire charred the building that once housed up to 600 people in 120 apartments. Police had previously put the death toll at 30.

On Saturday afternoon 58 people were confirmed to be missing, presumed dead.

"Mohammed undertook a unsafe journey to flee war and death in Syria, only to meet it here in the United Kingdom, in his own home", the Syrian Solidarity Campaign said in a statement.

After a botched snap election that lost her party its majority in parliament, May is facing criticism for her response to the blaze which engulfed the 24-storey apartment block of social housing on Wednesday.

Anyone who has concerns about someone who they know may have been living, visiting or staying in Grenfell Towers, but has not yet been contacted by the police or not yet reported their concerns about a possible missing person should call the police Casualty Bureau on 0800 0961 233. "I hope it won't, but it may increase".

The two fighters have taken to social media on several occasions to express their desire for an eventual boxing match. Despite the mismatch, one of the biggest reasons this fight has felt inevitable is because of the money .

"There is money pouring in from all these awesome volunteers - we can't get access to the money". "We need to find out precisely what cladding was used and how it was attached".

"Afterwards, she will meet a group of residents, victims, volunteers and community leaders in Number 10".

Cundy said the police investigation into the blaze would look at the building and its refurbishment in 2016 and vowed to prosecute people "if there is evidence".

She also pledged 5 million pounds of support, housing guarantees and help with access to bank accounts and cash.

She said support on the ground for families immediately after the blaze was "not good enough" and ordered that more staff be deployed at the scene in high-visibility clothing. "On Saturday, I went in myself and went to the top floor". Her First Secretary of State, Damian Green, defended the prime minister, saying she was as "distraught as we all are". But also a community frustrated and yes angry.

Anger boiled over on Friday as people stormed Kensington & Chelsea Town Hall. The queen said it was "difficult to escape a very somber mood" on what is normally a day of celebration.
