One of the organisers has read out a statement outside the town hall, while other protesters were chanting slogans, TV images from Sky News showed on Friday. Police were seen on stand-by not far away from the protesters.

The protesters are seeking a list of demands which has been given to the council, Xinhua news agency reported.

The list includes immediate re-housing of all the victims of Grenfell Tower fire within the borough, immediate release of funds to cover costs of welfare and all losses suffered by the victims, and launching an investigation into the recent refurbishment project of the tower.
