Grenfell Tower model: Paul Bussetti pleads guilty to sharing ‘offensive’ video of effigy on fire | UK News


A man has admitted sending a “grossly offensive” video of a cardboard model of Grenfell Tower burning on a bonfire.

Paul Bussetti, 49, pleaded guilty at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

He was cleared of posting the video in August 2019, but prosecutors appealed against the verdict and the High Court ordered a retrial.

Bussetti sent the video on WhatsApp after filming it in a friend’s garden in November 2018.

The footage, in which cardboard figures burned as the model went up in flames, was then widely shared online – prompting outrage after the 2017 blaze in west London that killed 72 people.
