Police investigating Grenfell effigy video hand file of evidence to prosecutors

Prosecutors are considering whether to bring criminal charges against a group of men filmed burning an effigy of Grenfell Tower.

The Metropolitan Police passed a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service around 10 days ago and a decision will be made in due course.

Six men were arrested and a seventh interviewed under caution over the video, which sparked outrage when it was posted online in November.

A total of 72 people died as a result of the tragedy at the west London block on June 14 2017.

The police have passed evidence to the CPS regarding a video which featured a model of Grenfell Tower on fire. The CPS is now considering the available evidence and will make a decision in due course on whether anyone should be charged with any criminal offences.
