Five Men Arrested Over Bonfire Night Grenfell Tower Effigy Burning

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

Video footage of Britain's sickest bonfire showed people suggesting that the victims of the blaze - which killed 72 people past year - hadn't paid their rent, as one person dubbed a crude cartoon of a Muslim woman on the effigy a "ninja".

In a video which emerged on social media a group laughs at the victims of London's Grenfell Tower tragedy while burning a cardboard model.

'To mock that disaster in such a crude way is vile'.

They were a 19-year-old, a 46-year-old and a 49-year-old, all from South Norwood, a 49-year-old from Lambeth, a 55-year-old from Beckenham, and another 19-year-old.

Khadijah Mamudu, whose mother and younger brother escaped the fire, said she was stunned by the footage. The video showed one person saying: "That little ninja's getting it at the minute" - an apparent racist comment about a Muslim woman in a burqa depicted on the side of the model.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said: "At a time when the bereaved and survivors are giving testimony to the Grenfell inquiry and reliving the unimaginable horror of that tragedy, it beggars belief that anyone should do this".

A spokesperson for the campaign group Justice4Grenfell said the video had "caused great alarm and distress", and added: "We are disgusted and shocked at the inhumanity and callousness of those involved in this video".

Another voice can be heard saying "that's what happens when they don't pay their rent".

Officers discovered he had no links to Grenfell Tower, and was living at another address in Kensington, London. "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".

One dissenter is heard suggesting that the group's action was in "really bad taste".

As the video was circulating on Twitter, a number of people condemned the act.

"It's a disgusting video".

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

The video has been particularly disturbing for many people because the Grenfell tragedy has raised hard issues about race and class in Britain.
