A burning Union flag was placed in a bus stop a day after the London terror attack
The sickening image was spotted on the outside of a bus stop on Ladbroke Grove, west London.
Forensic teams were seen scanning the area for fingerprints at 10.20am yesterday morning.
The poster has now been removed. It is unclear who put up the disturbing image or why.
Paul Pavli, 54, tweeted out a picture of the poster after travelling past the bus stop on his way to central London.
He said: “It was annoying, it made me angry that someone would have done that.

Mr Pavli, who lives in the nearby area, saw the poster at around 11am.
