Five arrested over video of burning Grenfell effigy on bonfire

Home Secretary Sajid Javid condemned the video calling it 'disgusting shameful behaviour'

Earlier, Scotland Yard has confirmed that five men presented themselves to a police station after an investigation into the video has been launched. But raucous laughter can be heard off-camera, with several bystanders speaking with southern English accents.

Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy, who is leading the investigation into the Grenfell Tower tragedy, said he was "frankly appalled by the callous nature" of the video.

Det Con Ben Rouse, of the Metropolitan Police, said: "This was a substantial fraud, made all the more deplorable by the fact that it was committed in the immediate aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire, with the money set aside to help those directly affected by the tragedy".

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

As the fire climbs up the model building, one of the people question whether they should have put the tower on upside down, because the fire started on the 10th floor.

One person can be hear saying: "That little ninja is really getting it", which people understand to be referring to a cardboard Muslim woman wearing a hijab.

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

"But there are no excuses, to play in the Premier League you have to be at the top level and if you are not you get found out". We're on the back of three wins and three clean sheets, which is very hard for the likes of ourselves to do.

London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton has also voiced concern over the video, calling it appalling and adding that the actions of those involved "cannot be justified on any level".

"When one is ignorant of the world and people that are around them they do the most stupid and vile things".

"It can not be justified on any level".

"We will continue to investigate and where appropriate prosecute anyone who is financially profiting from the Grenfell fire, and taking away resources and support for the true victims".

"This is clearly a hate crime and as a society we should never tolerate these types of blatant acts of hatred".

Natasha Elcock, from Grenfell United, said: "It's a disgusting video". "We're coming to get you!" yells another participant, referring to the promises of emergency workers who instructed residents to stay in place and wait for help - help that didn't reach them in time.

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