more in the next hour. we are going to return to our top story now, three days after the tower block fire in london many residents remain angry, demanding justice for the victims of the fire, but also for more information. theresa may coming underfire but also for more information. theresa may coming under fire for her handling of the disaster. let's get more on that now from our colleague ben brown who is in west london with residents. ijust i just saw ijust saw a i just saw a placard on the ijust saw a placard on the road next to where i am saying stay away misses may. at this methodist church, one of the emergency centres near grenfell tower where aid is still being processed and distributed, there will be a big service here tomorrow and another service here tomorrow and another service at a catholic church around the corner at midday today to remember those who are dead and missing. the prime minister has been talking about the disaster. she has promised a £5 million government fund to help those affected by the
10:38 am
fire. this is what she told emily maitlis last night on bbc newsnight. we are committed to make sure that people have as far as possible in the borough and neighbouring boroughs, some people may want to go to another part of london where perhaps they have a greater support network and where they have friends and relatives. we are ensuring that within three weeks people will be rehoused, so they have a home to go to. i ask you again, do you accept that you misread the public mood, the level of public anger, you didn't go and meet residents and they really resented that? this was a terrible tragedy that took place. people have lost their lives and others have lost everything, all of their possessions, their home, and everything. what we are doing is putting in place the support that will help them. but it is a terrible tragedy. i have heard horrifying stories from the fire brigade, from
10:39 am
police, and from the victims themselves, who where in that tower and also from other local residents, some of whom of course have not been able to go back to their homes either. what i'm now absolutely focused on is ensuring that we get that support on the ground. as i say, government is making money available, we are ensuring that we are going to get to the bottom of what happened, we will ensure that people are rehoused but we need to make sure that actually happens. that was the prime minister speaking last night to emily maitlis. so many dead and missing. the bbc understands 70 people may be either dead or missing. the official death toll currently is still 30. let's talk to michael hillier who has a friend who was in grenfell tower, your friend raymond

10:43 am
thank you. the tragedy in west london and the terror attacks recently in london and manchester have led to an unprecedented message from the queen to mark her birthday. in a statement she said, it was difficult to escape a very sombre national mood in the light of recent tragedies. today should continue to be a day of celebration for trooping the colour to mark the queen's official birthday. that mood is likely to be affected by recent events. let's speak to our royal correspondent nicholas witchell who is there. we have already seen unprecedented moves by the queen and the royal family in the light of recent events and we are likely to see more changes today, understandably, nicholas. yes, what we will see in about two minutes from now is a minute's silence their own horse guards parade. you can see the footguards

10:46 am
celebration normally a trooping the colour will take place as normal. but it is, as the queen noted in this statement, issued by buckingham palace this morning, it is difficult to escape a very sombre national mood. hence that moment of silence observed just a moment ago. now, let us observed just a moment ago. now, let usjoin our colleagues on bbc observed just a moment ago. now, let us join our colleagues on bbc one for some of the commentary for trooping the colour and huw edwards. the duchess of cornwall and prince harry and duchess of cambridge in the first carriage emerging from the palace. on a sunny but rather sombre morning following that national silence led by the queen. there we
