Police have arrested two people on suspicion of racial hatred after a video appeared online showing a man burning a copy of the Koran.

The video, which MailOnline has chosen not to publish, shows a tattooed man standing in a kitchen complaining about being unable to start a fire.

Speaking into the camera, he says: 'I've been trying to get my poxy fire started for half-hour wondering what s**t I can get it going with.'

Holding a paperback copy of the Koran up to the camera, he adds: 'And then I found this.'

Two videos were posted on Facebook and YouTube on Tuesday and are still available today on various pages.

The second shows the man standing outside tearing pages from the holy book and throwing them on a bonfire.

He says to the camera: 'And it worked, all I've got left is the poxy, sh***y cover and look, that's on the fire as well.'

West Mercia Police have confirmed they have arrested two people in connection with the video.

Detectives said a 45-year-old man from Worcestershire was arrested on suspicion of posting videos or images likely to cause racial hatred and a 45-year-old woman from Evesham has also been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.

Superintendent Kevin Purcell said: 'This was a concerning incident and we will be carrying out a thorough investigation. It is being investigated as a hate crime.

'We have been in contact with our local Muslim community via Councillor Jabba Riaz, deputy Mayor for Worcester who, as always, acts as a critical friend in support of what we do.

'If anyone has any concerns about social media posts that potentially incite hate, I would urge them not to share the posts but to report the incident to the police and social media company at the earliest opportunity.'

Copies of the Koran are treated with high regard by Muslims and any move to desecrate or destroy the holy book is seen as an insult.

It comes as a Press Association investigation found Facebook and Twitter had failed to take down a number of misleading videos posted by nationalist group Britain First.

Since April 19 the group has posted at least 10 videos containing scenes substantially different to those described in comments by the group.

These videos have been shared almost 7,000 times altogether. Videos posted by the group often target minority groups, and analysis found they consistently posted false claims about the circumstances being shown, including untrue claims that Muslims and migrants had attacked women and police.

The footage is either posted directly to Facebook and Twitter, or embedded in one of the party's websites, which are laden with adverts, and then linked to by their social media accounts.

Their verified Facebook page has over 1.8 million likes, which is more than the Conservative, Labour and the Lib Dem parties have combined.

Their Twitter following, however, is far smaller: their unverified @BritainFirstHQ account has just short of 13,000 followers, though leader Paul Golding has 28,000 followers and his deputy Jayda Fransen has 29,000.

Despite social networks announcing high profile measures to tackle 'fake news' in recent months, the content remained on both platforms days after it was alerted to them by PA.

Twitter said it does not comment on individual accounts for 'privacy and security reasons'.

Facebook said it is investigating the posts and that it understands 'that misleading information can be harmful to our community and we want to do our part to address it'.

When MailOnline contacted Facebook regarding the Koran burning footage it asked for links to the video and said it would 'investigate'.

Birmingham Infidels UK published Jan 19, 2016: Muslims march towards American Embassy calling for Jihad.

Why are Islamist allowed to literally threaten us non-Muslims with death and destruction and spew their hatred. As you can see in this video I shared with you, they are OPENLY SHOWING their support for ISIS by waving the ISIS black flag with pride. When things are this obvious, it's crazy you are able to convince so many people that we are making this up. These Islamists are insulting OUR SENSIBILITIES and the UK government is protecting them while they march. But two Brits get arrest for "racial hatred after a video appeared online showing a man burning a copy of the Koran." Sheer insanity. Everything feels upside down, and backwards. And for your information, pay attention when you watch the video... this is not a 'handful' of Islamist chanting threats and marching on the streets of London.
