https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/apr/15/man-charged-over-cardboard-grenfell-fire-videoA 46-year-old man from south-east London has been charged over a video posted on social media that showed a cardboard effigy of Grenfell Tower being burned.
Paul Bussetti, from South Norwood, was charged on Friday with two counts of sending, or causing to be sent, grossly offensive material via a public communications network.
He was one of five men who handed themselves into a south London police station in November after the video appeared online.
It showed a cardboard model marked “Grenfell Tower” being placed over a fire in what appeared to be a back garden in which an England flag was mounted on a pole.
Bystanders could be heard saying, “Help me, help me!” and “Jump out the window!” One of them waved a cutout of a person in a window, several of which appeared to have been coloured brown.
Seventy-two people died as a result of the blaze at the 24-storey block in North Kensington, west London, on 14 June 2017.
Bussetti is due to appear at Westminster magistrates court on 30 April.
Oi, you got a loicense for that cardboard burning, mate?
