The Queen said: “My government will initiate a full public inquiry into the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower, to ascertain the causes and ensure the appropriate lessons are learned.

“To support victims, my government will take forward measures to introduce an independent public advocate, who will act for bereaved families after a public disaster and support them at public inquests.”

The Grenfell Fire Response Team said so far some £675,200 has been distributed to affected families via £500 in cash, £5,000 bank transfers and other “discretionary payments” made by Kensington and Chelsea Council.

Police doing 'everything we can to find answers'

The Metropolitan Police has issued a statement to mark it being one week since the fire.

Commander Stuart Cundy, said:

“One week ago Grenfell Tower was devastated by a fire. Today, is a day to reflect and remember all those who have been affected by the disastrous fire; those who have died, those who lost loved ones and those who survived.

“My thoughts, and those of everyone in the Metropolitan Police, are with those for whom Grenfell Tower was home, those who are grieving and the local community.

“We will continue to do everything we can to find answers to those who are missing loved ones. I know that for those who are suffering those answers cannot come quickly enough.”

'Day of Rage' protests

Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary has created an event on Facebook. At the moment 367 people have said they are going to the event, and a further 909 are interested in going.

Writing on the event, Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary said: “Bring Down the Government - Shut Down London.”

Adding: “In one of the wealthiest boroughs in the country, the demands from poor and working class residents for the simple right to safety and security have been repeatedly and disdainfully ignored.”

But some of the residents who have been affected by the fatal Grenfell Tower fire , have talked about having their ‘grief hijacked’ following the announcement of the ‘Day of Rage’ protest outside the Houses of Parliament.

According to the ClementJames Centre, a local educational charity which has provided temporary shelter for residents, those affected by the fire do not support the planned protest.
