Five men questioned by police over ‘offensive’ Grenfell bonfire video

Credit Uknown

A video of a burning cardboard model of Grenfell Tower, the London apartment bloc that went up in flames past year killing 71 people, has caused an uproar and led to arrests.

The men handed themselves into a south London police station Monday night and were arrested on suspicion of a public order offence, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement Tuesday.

The video surfaced on social media on Monday and featured a cardboard replica of the flats set alight, with paper people dangling from the building.

Prime Minister Theresa May tweeted that the video was "utterly unacceptable", while Home Secretary Sajid Javid dubbed it "disgusting, shameful, behaviour".

Tom Swarbrick challenges an LBC listener who insists the Grenfell Tower effigy video is "hilarious".

A video has emerged on social media showing a group laughing at the victims of the fire tragedy while burning a cardboard model.

Other comments include that of a man shouting "jump out the window" and another boasting that he "made the burning people".

Commander Stuart Cundy, who is leading the investigation into the Grenfell Tower fire said: "I am frankly appalled by the callous nature of the video posted online".

He said the Met's Grenfell Tower investigation team is "taking this matter very seriously" and that any offences committed "will be fully investigated".

One person joked "the little ninja is getting it at the moment, ' to which one person replied 'it's because they don't pay their rent".

The video ends as the model is completely consumed by the fire, with one bystander saying: "Perfect".

"I can't imagine the distress this video will undoubtedly cause to bereaved families and survivors".

Campaigners have described the video as a "sickening act of hate". We hope that the police are taking this seriously.

Although the total number of people involved in the video is still unknown, a chorus of laughter can be heard as the effigy eventually goes up in flames.

Not only is it extremely upsetting to survivors & people who lost family, it's hateful & offensive to everyone that has been affected by the tragic events of that night.

London mayor Sadiq Khan said: "I utterly condemn this sickening video".
