Father and son among those arrested for burning Grenfell Tower effigy

FIVE men have been arrested over the sick Grenfell Tower effigy video - as the warped mob were slammed by survivors and the Prime Minister.

The men, aged 19, 46, 55 and two 49-year-olds, were arrested after handing themselves in at a south London police station at 10pm on Monday.

They have been arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and taken into custody.

The police officer in charge of investigating the inferno that claimed 71 lives called the video "vile" and "callous".

This is the sickening moment a group of Bonfire Night party-goers laugh as they torch a replica of Grenfell Tower in place of a traditional Guy.

Shocking footage shows the throng jeering as they burn a cardboard structure with Grenfell Tower written on the side in a sick nod to the tragedy that claimed 72 lives.

Onlookers can be heard mockingly chanting "help me, help me" as the tower - with cut-out drawings of residents trying to escape - is lifted onto the bonfire.

A woman can be heard heard smirking "Bye everyone! Bye!" as the replica catches fire.

In a twisted reference to the London Fire Service's deadly 'stay-put' advice, a man can be heard jeering: "Stay in your flat we are coming to get ya" - while another tells residents to "jump out the window".

Another joked: "That's what happens when they don't pay their rent" Five men, aged 19 to 55, arrested:

My view: Vile disgusting racists, they're worse than Trump, just look at the image of kids the evil family display on the fake structure. It's sad there's nothing funny about their distasteful comment, it's sickening, you can hear them laughing and saying, "This is what you get when you don't pay your rent", it must be extremely upsetting to the families of those that died in the fire, but they shouldn't be in jail, they should be cautioned.
