The British Prime Minister Theresa May has condemned those responsible for making and distributing a video showing a model of Grenfell Tower being burned on a bonfire.

In footage which has been described as being completely unacceptable by the British PM, a group people can be seen holding a cardboard effigy of the building.

The appalling footage which has been widely criticised after being shared on social media, apparently shows the heartless individuals through the effigy onto the bonfire before that can be heard shouting ‘help me’ – ‘help me’.

Speaking about the disgraceful act on Monday, Ms May said: ‘To disrespect those killed in the fire and their families is completely unacceptable.’

The shocking footage which also showed what appeared to be cardboard cutouts of people standing at windows in the effigy, has now led to a number organisations to call police to investigate the incident as it could be considered as an act of hate crime.

Although police have yet to identify any of the individuals involved in the footage, Scotland Yard say they are treating the incident as a serious matter.
