A South Norwood man has been charged after a video showing an effigy of the Grenfell Tower being burned was posted online.

Paul Bussetti, 46, is accused of two counts of sending or causing to be sent grossly offensive material via a public communications network.

According to the charge it is a crime under the Communications Act 2003 carrying a maximum sentence of six months in prison.

Scotland Yard said he will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Tuesday April 30.

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

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

Two of the men arrested were previously named as father and son Clifford Smith, 49, and Bobbi Connell, 19. This is the first time Mr Bussetti's name has come to light.

A spokesperson for the Met Police said they are waiting for an update on the other five men.

As of November 6 they were released from police custody and remained on police bail.

Their actions were widely condemned by the local community, which organised a march to show "solidarity" with Grenfell victims, streets away from the home where the video was filmed.
