The death toll in wednesday’s devastating fire that engulfed the 24-storey residential block in west London has risen to 30 amid fears that it could climb to over 100 in one of the worst fire tragedies in the country.

LONDON FIREMetropolitan police commander Stuart Cundy said, the bodies have been taken to a morgue, but more bodies remain in the building. The police officer ruled out expectation of any survivors. About 600 people were believed to have been inside the tower’s 120 flats, many of them asleep, when the blaze ripped through the building.

Meanwhile Protesters demanding help for those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire have stormed Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall with a list of demands. Several people broke off from a protest outside to go into the council building. One member of the public said people made homeless needed help “right now”.

After meeting survivors near Grenfell Tower, Theresa May announced a £5m fund to pay for emergency supplies, food, clothes and other costs.

There were angry scenes outside the Clement James Centre, in North Kensington, where the meeting had been held.

The Press Association reported one woman was crying at the scene saying it was because the prime minister had declined to speak to anyone outside.

Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by grandson Prince William, paid a visit to the Grenfell Tower this morning. They met volunteers, local residents and community representatives. British Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered a judge-led full public inquiry into the incident .
Meanwhile, donations to help those affected by the tragedy have surpassed 2 million pounds in just two days.
