It was horrible what theyve done. Let them try and forget it.

The six men – two aged 19, two aged 49, 46 and 55 – were arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.

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"

Another says: Here we go, as the fire takes hold.

At the end of the clip, someone else can be heard saying: Thats what happens when they dont pay their rent.

The video ends as the model is completely consumed by the fire, with one bystander saying: Perfect.

Campaigners described the video as a sickening act of hate.

Natasha Elcock, from Grenfell United, said: Its a disgusting video. We hope that the police are taking this seriously.
