Residents said the multi-storey residential building trapped people inside.
The fires in Kensington and Chelsea in London put a lot of pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May, the worst since World War II in Britain. After her party lost a parliamentary majority in a hasty election, she was already fighting for her political survival.
The Grenfell tragedy is the focus of anger at the local government\'s cuts.
There are allegations of criminal negligence by the government, and if more buildings are considered unsafe, the government will face the task of placing people in existing social housing facilities that are already stretched.
\"The estimate that the Parliament has given us is about 600 high.
A spokesman for May told reporters: \"similar buildings . \".
She said the government has not yet conducted an assessment of Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

The fire resistance of the panel varies depending on its intended use.

\"Obviously, no one will live in an unsafe building,\" said Mei\'s spokesman . \" People will be relocated if necessary, she added.
A spokesman for the community and local government departments, who are responsible for testing the offices of these buildings, later said that the 600 figure is an estimate of how many layers of any form of cladding are available, instead of finally finding out how many layers are dangerous.

May has opened a public investigation into the fire and police have announced a criminal investigation.
She said that in the next 48 hours, the cladding test of Grenfell Tower will be made public.
The leader of the demolition Engineering Committee in Camden, another borough of London, said that after finding that the outer cladding panel did not meet the standards entrusted by it, the committee would take five properties from one local property.
The commission said it was notifying contractors to install a cladding consisting of aluminum plates with polyethylene cores and that it was receiving urgent legal advice.
It says that there will be circles before the panels are all removed-the-

\"This is a wake-up call --
Call on the people of the country, \"said Jeremy Corbin, leader of the opposition Labor Party.
\"Tower residents across the country are worried, worried and scared about their own safety.
What we need is to change our attitude towards housing in this country.
\"After a slow apology for the country\'s response to the fire, May said Kensington and Chelsea Commission chief executive Nicolas Holgate was right to resign.
He said he was driven out by the government. (
