The Mayor of London faced furious crowds today as frustrated residents demanded answers about the tragic deaths in Grenfell Tower.

Sadiq Khan was confronted by up to 300 people outside Notting Hill Methodist Church in West London when visiting the scene of the inferno.

Mr Khan was even heckled by a seven-year-old boy who asked: 'How many children have died?'

In dramatic scenes captured on Sky News, Kai Ramos, who was sat on a relative's shoulders, added: 'What are you going to do about it?'

The Mayor replied: 'The bad news is I'm afraid, lots of people died in this fire, there were very brave firefighters and police and ambulance workers.

'They are going through the building now, that's why it takes time you see. I know it's very sad because you might have a friend in there.'

Grenfell Tower residents, who faced another two high-profile visits from Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn today, had been raising their concerns about the building for years and are now desperate for answers.

Furious residents even vented their anger on a memorial to the victims, aiming blasts at politicians with slogans including 'Theresa May stay away'.
