London police ponder manslaughter in tower fire

Documents and materials had been seized from a "number of organisations", she added.

She said it is thought the work would take three to four weeks, adding: "We realise that this is hugely distressing for everyone affected and we will be doing all we can, alongside the London Fire Brigade and other authorities, to support our residents at this hard time".

British Prime Minister Theresa May has tweeted that her thoughts are with hundreds of public housing residents who are being evacuated because of fire safety concerns.

"Grenfell changes everything", she said, referencing last week's devastating fire at Grenfell Tower.

"At the moment they haven't done it and they are saying they will knock on everyone's doors when they are ready".

Refurbishment on the Chalcots estate in Camden was overseen by Rydon, the company involved in the refit of Grenfell Tower, according to the Rydon website.

The U.K. government has issued an order for an immediate examination of all such units in order to determine whether or not they pose a fire risk as well.

"We are addressing this as a matter of utmost urgency".

Hotpoint owner Whirlpool said in a statement: "Words can not express our sorrow at this awful tragedy".

The company manufactured 64,000 Hotpoint refrigerators between 2006 and 2009 with the model numbers FF175BP and FF175BG-the former of these two was the model make of the Whirlpool refrigerator that blew up.

A high rise building block in Belfast may have the same outside combustible cladding as London's Grenfell Tower.

"Cladding panels from Durham House have been sent for precautionary tests to BRE Group and Ulster University". Some councils have begun removing the panels. Samples from 14 buildings in London, Manchester and Plymouth have already been found to be combustible.

The Metropolitan Police on Friday confirmed residents' suspicions that the June 14 inferno at Grenfell Tower was touched off by a refrigerator fire.

Police are looking at all parts of the cladding system and its installation, McCormack said.

"We are working with the authorities to obtain access to the appliance so that we can assist with the ongoing investigations".

Meanwhile, the search for victims' bodies continues.

McCormack also repeated calls for anyone with information on who might have been in the tower to come forward.

Further tests are being done on the refrigerator, she said, with the assistance of the manufacturer.

"It did not feel like a situation yesterday where they were going to be evacuating people but clearly they discovered something". "I fear that there are more".
