Grenfell Tower bonfire 'disrespectful' says Britain's PM Theresa May

British Prime Minister Theresa May has criticised an "utterly unacceptable" video which shows a model of London's Grenfell Tower being burned on a bonfire.

A video has emerged on social media showing a group laughing at the victims of the fire tragedy while burning a cardboard model.

A total of 72 people were killed in the blaze at the West London tower block on June 14, 2017.

The model in the video includes cut outs of people looking out the windows and even has one dangling from the top.

Theresa May tweeted: "To disrespect those who lost their lives at Grenfell Tower, as well as their families and loved ones, is utterly unacceptable."

Scotland Yard police said the Grenfell Tower investigation team is making inquiries.

The Metropolitan Police are appealing for information about the event that has been widely condemned as “sick” and racist, the Independent reported.

The footage, apparently shot for bonfire night in a private garden, shows the one metre high cardboard model with brown faces at the windows – and a woman in a niqab – being lifted onto a fire.

It is not known where the event happened, but some people viewing the video said the accents suggested Essex or London.
