Firefighters have been scouring the top floors of the building - where the blaze is said to have originated - but have struggled to identify bodies amid the blackened wreckage.

The singer has made no public declaration of her visit, instead choosing to quietly meet and offer help to victims.

It is thought some families have asked to be rehoused outside the area to be near relatives.

May did not support a proposal put forward by Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour Party, to seize unoccupied properties to rehouse survivors of the fire, the spokeswoman said. I used to play in that block.
