LONDON, June 17 A railway track which lies in the shadow of a London tower block that was gutted by a deadly blaze this week was closed on Saturday at the request of the fire brigade, the city's transport authority said.

The borough said Friday that all residents of Grenfell Tower who had asked for help had been housed in hotels and that it was looking for interim accommodation for those people and others living nearby who could not return home.

Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered more boots on the ground after labelling the support given to families in the aftermath of the fore as "not good enough". He says it will take weeks or longer to recover and identify all the dead at the charred building. He said there are roughly 2,500 similar apartment towers throughout Britain.

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy announced the new number - up from 58 - in a statement to reporters. For example, I offered to host six people.

Labour Party lawmaker David Lammy said that the government and the police should immediately seize all documents relating to the building's renovation to prevent the destruction of evidence that could show criminal wrongdoing. Experts believe the new paneling, which contained insulation, helped spread the flames quickly up the outside of the public housing tower.

On Saturday, May spent over two hours meeting residents from the north Kensington area at her Downing Street residence and chaired a meeting on the government's response to the fire.

She said that the government has begun distributing funds from a $6.4 emergency fund created to assist victims of the blaze, and housing officials are conducting safety checks of other public high-rise towers in London.

So, the residents are saying that the final death toll could be much higher than the figure what British authorities are giving.

Officials are using dental records, fingerprints and DNA samples to try and positively identify victims.

Earlier on Saturday, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip observed a moment of silence to honor the victims.

The government has promised a full public inquiry, but that has done little to ease a sense of frustration at the lack of information about how the fire moved so quickly to engulf the building.

Scuffles broke out near the Kensington and Chelsea town hall offices Friday as demonstrators chanting "We want justice!" surged toward the doors.

Prime Minister Theresa May was to chair another meeting of top officials in response to the tragedy. More than 3 million pounds ($3.8 million) have been raised for the victims.

Speaking outside St Clement's Church, Mr Khan said: "There is a feeling from the community that they have been treated badly because some of them are poor". There is ample food and water but very little privacy or proper bedding, and with the tower destroyed, no one knows where they will be relocated or for how long.

London fire chief Dany Cotton told BBC radio that it might be "some days yet" before firefighters could say they have reached everyone in the building.
