Sick laughing party goers burnt an effigy of Grenfell Tower complete with people hanging out of windows calling for help before going to their 'deaths'. The burning people were made from brown cardboard.
A video of this bonfire party 'joke' was shown on ITV news at 10.00.
I'm speechless ! It's outrageous and sickening. What kind of person / people would construct such an offensive model for fun and then burn it while other morons stand round watching and laughing? They need locking up. 72 people died in the Grenfell Tower fire. What happened to respect ?

That is disgusting.

Some people think anything is ok to joke about and too bad if it offends or upsets people. :(

I also saw this on the news, I'm shocked, disgusted, sickened and angry, on the news only part of the video was shown because the rest was too bad to be shown, how bad was the bit we didn't see??

Makes me ashamed to be British.

I'm sure some people will know who they are and maybe they'll deal out some "justice" if police can't charge them.

Why do some people get their kicks from such vile behaviour??

I've just heard on radio five news that five "men" have been arrested but it seems they will be charged under the Public Offenses Act...........

Anyone know about this act?

If it's anything like the similarly named Act here it's a general catch all for bad behavior as opposed to specific criminality.

The men, not boys, were aged 55, two aged 49, 46 and 19. No excuses.

It's hard to understand the mindset of such people.
