Six men arrested over Grenfell Tower bonfire


The Police called it “callous”, the Prime Minister said it was “utterly unacceptable” and the Chairman of the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry described it as “shocking and distressing”.

Now officers are investigating if it was a crime. Six men have been arrested on suspicion of a public order offence after video emerged showing a model of Grenfell Tower being burned on a bonfire.

Five of the men were arrested at a south London police station last night. Here’s Paraic O’Brien.
