London police arrest 6 men in Grenfell Tower effigy video

The Metropolitan Police said the men - two aged 49 and the others aged 19, 46 and 55 - handed themselves in at a south London station on Monday night.

Five people have been arrested in connection with an investigation into a video showing the burning of a Grenfell Tower model.

The video, which is believed to have been recorded and shared on a messaging app, quickly went viral on Twitter.

The London residential block went up in flames in June past year, claiming 71 lives. Residents were forced to flee, remain in sweltering temperatures or jump. "Help me, help me", another man shrieks, apparently in jest, as the fire climbs the paper model.

"The community is stronger together and even this vile act by flag-waving, intellectually challenged, brainwashed sheep won't derail the fight for justice, nor will it knock us off our stride as we walk forward, in dignity, in unity, in solidarity".

In the clip posted online, raucous laughter can be heard off-camera as the model is set alight. The St. George's Cross flag is the flag of England, with the Union flag representing the United Kingdom.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has criticised the "utterly unacceptable" video. Members of the group put the model on a fire and laugh as it burns and falls over.

Has Theresa May secured a breakthrough to seal a Brexit deal?
In a public message to Mr Varadkar, Ms McDonald warned the backstop "cannot be diluted". She wants a way of bringing it to an end.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan called the video "sickening" and urged social media companies to remove the content.

He said: "The inquiry is aware of the offensive video that was posted online yesterday".

It has a sign on it labelled "Grenfell Tower" and has cardboard figures of people looking out of the windows. To mock that disaster in such a crude way is vile.

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".

"I am very pleased to hear that the authorities are taking the matter very seriously and that an investigation is under way". "Any offences that have been committed will be fully investigated".

For many in Britain, what happened at Grenfell Tower is a hugely delicate subject, with the tragedy at the centre of conversations about race relations in Britain, adequacy of public housing and what could have been done to prevent the inferno.
