British PM May tries to quell public anger after deadly London fire

Earlier, dozens of people stormed the town hall building in the London's Kensington district where the tragedy was being discussed. "I said 'why you didn't come - they brought us outside, I thought you are with us.' He said 'no one brought me outside.' He said, 'why you left me?'"

The protesters made their way through an automatic door at the local Kensington and Chelsea town hall.

Residents had sent a list of demands to the council, including the immediate rehoming of all people displaced by the fire within the borough; the release of funds to take care of the welfare of those affected; and a complete list of the residents known to live in the tower block.

Scuffles broke out in the crowd as Mrs May's auto drove away from the scene of the disaster.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is to meet victims of the Grenfell Tower fire disaster in her 10 Downing Street office on Saturday, officials said.

May has been criticised from within her own Conservative Party over her response and she pledged on Thursday to hold a public inquiry into the fire at the social housing block which was home to about 600 people. Metropolitan Police Stuard Cundy said: "Sadly, our work will be ongoing for many, many weeks".

On the lack of sprinklers in Grenfell Tower, and other buildings, he said: "My understanding is that the best expert advice is that retrofitting sprinklers may not always be the best technical way of ensuring fire safety in a building". "How did they allow this tragedy to happen when it could have easily been avoided?"

Help will be given to residents who do not have bank accounts.

The fire forced residents to flee through black smoke down the single stairwell, jump out of windows or even drop their children from the 120-apartment building.

Commander Stuart Cundy said they had been able to remove the remains of only 12 victims from the building.
