The mother of the teenager arrested over the Grenfell Tower effigy bonfire said that his behaviour has nothing to do with him.
Bobbi Connell, 19, is one of five men being questioned by police after handing themselves in following the posting of the video on social media.
The bonfire night celebration is said to have taken place at the address Connell lives at with his father Clifford Smith in South Norwood, south London.
A woman answered the door at Louise Connell’s home in Lee, south east London today (Tues) and politely said Louise had ‘had enough’ of people arriving on her doorstep.
She said: “She is at home but she doesn’t want to talk. She is tired of people coming to the door.
“She has had enough. Bobbi hasn’t lived here since she moved here, he lives with his dad.
“It’s a bit unfair that people are coming to talk to her when it’s nothing to do with her.”
Another man thought to have been arrested after a video of a Grenfell Tower effigy going up in flames went viral was criticised by a neighbour.
Paul Bussetti, 46, is believed to be among five men being questioned on suspicion of a public order offence, it has been reported.
A black Range Rover Sport with an England flag on its back registration was today parked on his two storey end of terrace home, which is on a parallel street to where the effigy was burnt on Saturday night.
A sign reading “The Bussetti Family: Party Animals” is fixed on the wall next his front door.
A young man who was heard inside the house refused to open the door.
Neighbour Lauren Rosseau, 18, said: “It’s not nice I don’t think he was ever really like that.
“I didn’t expect that he would do that, it’s quite shocking.”
Asked if Bussetti was British, she added: “I think they were a bit foreign.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
