The shadow Brexit Secretary, who is also the former Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), revealed prosecutors were now part of the investigation. And as NPR's Frank Langfitt in London, police are hoping that the death toll will not reach the triple digits. "It may well be the defining outcome of this tragedy that the worst mistakes of the 1960s and 1970s are systematically torn down", he said.

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 council said it planned to rehouse residents of Grenfell Tower "as locally as we can".

"I do sense the anger", Leadsom said.

"What I have done since this incident took place is, first of all, yesterday ensure that the public services had the support they need in order to be able to do the job they were doing in the immediate aftermath". Police and fire experts have said the fire was so intense that the process of identifying human remains will take weeks, if not months - and some victims may never be found.

Speaking on Peston on Sunday, Parti said volunteers have been unable to get access to the money, and said: "Kensington and Chelsea [Council] are giving ten pounds to the survivors when they go to the hotels...a tenner".

Theresa May admitted last night that the official response to the Grenfell Tower catastrophe "was not good enough".

"These were hard conversations with a tight-knit community that is understandably distraught, frustrated and increasingly angry". These include the Adair Tower, a 14-story apartment that was set afire in an arson attack in October 2015.

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

The news came as the Government announced those left homeless by the fire will be given at least £5,500 from an emergency fund.

The Home Office has assisted Alhajali's family in "making arrangements for their travel to the UK" from Syria, and more than 85,000 people have signed a petition calling for his parents to be granted visas so they can attend his funeral.

The 23-year-old Alhajali is the only victim of the Grenfell Tower fire to be officially named as the hard process of identifying human remains continues.
