A man has been arrested for opening body bags at Grefnell Tower and taking photos of victims.

The man, whom we have chosen not to publicly identify, posted the photos of the deceased victims to Facebook because he said he wanted to help identify them.

The Met Police said a 43-year-old man had been arrested near Latimer Road station in North Kensington at around 6pm.

He was arrested on suspicion of sending malicious communications and obstructing a coroner.

However the graphic photos, which have been seen by, are still on Facebook – despite a number of commenters reporting them to the site. The posts have also been flooded with negative comments.

In one of the posts, the man claims the body of a victim was left outside his flat for two hours before police or ambulances arrived.

He writes ‘Does any one know this body laying outside my flat for more than two hours’, before attaching five photos of a deceased victim’s upper body.
