The men, ranging in ages from 19 to 55, were taken into custody.

A video of a burning cardboard model of Grenfell Tower, the West London apartment building where 72 people died past year, has drawn criticism, including from UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who called the act "utterly unacceptable".

While Khadijah Mamudu, whose mother and younger brother escaped the fire, said the burning of the effigy was a "vile act".

LONDON-They burned a cardboard model of Grenfell Tower and mocked the victims.

As the flames begin to set the model alight, bystanders can be heard shouting "Help me, help me", while one person mocks the stay-put policy of the London fire brigade, saying, "Don't worry, stay in your flat".

"Didn't it start on the 10th floor?" a man can be heard saying.

One person joked "the little ninja is getting it at the moment, ' to which one person replied 'it's because they don't pay their rent".

Labour MP Emma Dent Coad, in whose Kensington constituency Grenfell Tower resides, was a part of an online effort to identify those in the video.

Scotland Yard said its Grenfell Tower investigation team was "taking this matter very seriously", adding: "Any offences that have been committed will be fully investigated".

Several onlookers can be heard shouting "help me, help me" and making siren sounds.

London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton, who was at the scene of the harrowing blaze, said the video was "appalling and disturbing". "Unfortunately it's just really bad taste".

British Prime Minister Theresa May has criticised the "utterly unacceptable" video.

MEND, an anti-Islamophobia organization, said the "sickening Islamophobic" video amounted to a hate crime.

The Justice4Grenfell campaign group, which includes survivors and families of the dead, said it was "shocked at the inhumanity and callousness" of those involved. "The horrific Grenfell Tower fire was one of the most devastating tragedies our city has ever suffered - and I urge social media companies to do the right thing and remove this content immediately".
