Shoppers’ horror at 9/11 frock on sale at east London market

A dress covered in large illustrations of the World Trade Center burning was found on sale for £5.00 at an east London market stall this week.

Shoppers at the Chrisp Street Market in Poplar posted photos of the offensive item online, writes Jamie Bullen in the Evening Standard (London).

The owner of the stall was horrified and said he had not realized what he was selling, as he bought the dress as part of a job lot.  Jaspir Bhatti told the Sun “There is no way I would sell that, I’m so horrified. I couldn’t even give this to charity. I’m absolutely shocked, it’s just the wrong thing to do — it’s terrifying,” and gave the dress to the newspaper to be destroyed.
