]>> Anger boiling over in West London Friday, protesters demanding to know how fire destroyed a council block as residents slept. Calling for justice, they stormed Kensingtons' Town Hall, near Grenfell Tower. People want answers to a number of questions. Did the cladding recently fitted to the building help spill the blaze?
Questions too over whether local authority cuts and the lack of fire prevention measures contributed to the disaster. Above all, they want to know how many people were inside the building? How many perished? The death toll keeps on rising. Police say searching the charred ruin could take weeks, even months.
>> So I know at this point in time there are at least 30 people that have died in this fire. The very nature of the intense fire that has occurred within Grenfell Tower.>> We all know it's a lot more than 30 people.>> And I do believe that the number will increase.
>> Police pledging to figure out if there are criminal acts of negligence behind the fire. Prime Minister Theresa May, increasingly a focal point for wrath, bundled away under police guard after meeting residents on Friday. She drew fury by failing to meet locals and victims when she went to visit the scene of the disaster on Thursday.
A visit Friday to a local hospital and the promise of a public inquiry far from assuaging that anger. A royal visit better received, though. Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince William meeting members of the emergency services and local residents made homeless by the fire.
