A British stag party has left New York people appalled after they were photographed taking selfies with a blow-up doll at Ground Zero.

The group of men, alleged to be from London, were asked to leave the area after police officers received a number of complaints.

The Daily Mail UK reported that when the stag party were asked what they were doing, a man believed to be the groom said 'it's just a bachelor party', before answering other questions with 'no comment'.

A woman who lost her husband during 9/11 was left “speechless” by the actions of the men on the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers.



 

Rosanne Hughes, a member of the New Jersey 9/11 Memorial Foundation, said: “That is sacred ground, I lost my husband and I don’t even know what to say – it’s disgusting.”

Other visitors to the memorial looked on as the British stag do wandered around taking pictures with the doll, smiling and laughing.

New Yorkers have been complaining about the lack of respect being shown at the memorial in general, as thousands of tourists pose for smiling selfies at the location where almost 3,000 people lost their lives in 2001.
