- £5 dress features colourful sketch of 9/11 attacks on World Trade Center
- Visitors to Chrisp Street Market in Poplar, East London, found it on sale
- Stall holder Jaspir Bhatti insists he didn't realise what was on the T-shirt
Horrified shoppers have discovered this sickening dress depicting the 9/11 terror attacks on sale at a London market shall.
The £5 clothing features a large colourful drawing of the World Trade Center with two aircraft smashing into each of the towers and flames coming out of the top.
It was found on sale at Chrisp Street Market in Poplar, East London, 15 years after the attacks on New York and Washington DC that killed almost 3,000 people.
Shocking: The £5 dress features a large colourful drawing of the World Trade Center with two aircraft smashing into each of the towers and flames coming out of the top.
Hair stylist Lisa Dean, 45, who lives near the market, said her 17-year-old son Stuart took a photograph of the dress while visiting the stalls with friends.
She told London Evening Standard reporter Jamie Bullen: ‘I thought it was very disrespectful to the people that died - it’s like their death is being advertised.
‘To me it feels like whoever made that dress or wears it supports what happened. I think it is disgusting. Whoever wears that is genuinely asking for trouble.
‘Since I put it on Facebook loads of people have said they will go down there. It has caused a lot of upset. I mean, who is actually going to wear that?’

Meanwhile local resident Sean Gower, 35, told The Sun reporter Dan Sales: ‘It’s very offensive. There were British people killed in the Twin Towers.
‘Something like this should not be on sale here. Stuff like that should not be made, let alone put up for sale in Britain.’
Stall holder Jaspir Bhatti, 44, insisted he had not realised what was depicted on the T-shirt and handed it to the newspaper to be destroyed.
Mr Bhatti is said to have believed he had bought the dress as part of a package from a wholesaler, but the company has since proved it did not come from them.
