Internet ban for offensive image

A man who posted an offensive doctored image of a teenage shooting victim on Facebook has been given 300 hours' community service.

Sophie Taylor, 16, was accidentally shot by her boyfriend, 18-year-old Calum Murray, who then turned the gun on himself at a cottage in Moray, in Scotland, last April.

Sean Duffy, 26, from Reading, admitted posting the image at Aberdeen Sheriff Court. He was also banned from creating accounts on social networking sites and is not allowed to post any videos or buy any device with internet access.
