Grenfell tower effigy: Sixth man arrested over video showing model being burned on a bonfire

Police have arrested a sixth man over a video showing an effigy of Grenfell Tower being burned on a bonfire.

The 19-year-old was detained on suspicion of a public order offence after handing himself in to a police station in south London.

Five men – two 49-year-olds and the others aged 19, 46 and 55 – were arrested on Monday night.

Police have been searching the home of the pair in South Norwood in south London.

Connell and Smith are believed to have been taken to Croydon Police station with Paul Bussetti, 46, according to the Daily Mail.

A close relative of Bussetti told the newspaper: “We’re in so much danger now, they didn’t want it to go this far.

“They are not racist, it’s been blown out of proportion.

“It was horrible what they’ve done, let them try and forget it.”

A statement from London’s police force said: “The men, aged 19 [A], 46 [B], 49 [C], 49 [D] 55 [E] and 19 [F] were all arrested under section 4a of the Public Order Act after attending a south London police station.

“The Met’s Grenfell Tower Investigation Team continues to lead enquiries.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or by tweeting @MetCC, quoting ‘Operation Northleigh’.”
