Grenfell Tower residents had expressed a series of concerns to the local council, including the lack of sprinklers and the fact that it had a single staircase - a common feature of 1970s tower blocks.
The residential tower was built in 1974 and had been extensively refurbished in works that were completed previous year.
May announced £5 million, or $6.4 million, in aid to help victims of the Grenfell Tower fire pay for emergency supplies like food, clothing and other items.
Scotland Yard has launched a criminal inquiry into the fire as it has emerged that the type of cladding panels used on the building have been widely prohibited on tall structures in the US since 2012 because of its flammability.
It said the company that manufactured the cladding also made fire-resistant models that cost fractionally more than the standard version. "The bodies have been taken to a morgue, but more bodies remain in the building".
Earlier, the police launched a criminal inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire incident after it emerged that cladding, used on Grenfell Tower is banned in the USA, and that it would have cost just 5,000 pounds extra for the contractors to apply a fire-resistant version of panelling to the building, according to a report by the Independent.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
