A South Norwood man will go on trial accused of filming a burning model of Grenfell Tower that provoked outrage when the footage was shared online.

Paul Bussetti, 46, allegedly sent a "grossly offensive" video on WhatsApp and caused footage of a "menacing character" to be uploaded on YouTube.

Footage of the cardboard model being burnt at a bonfire party sparked anger when it was posted publicly in November last year.

Bussetti, of Sundial Avenue, denies the charges.

He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on today..

The blaze at the block of flats in west London on June 14 2017 killed 72 people.
