No action to be taken against Britain's first youth police and crime commissioner Paris Brown over 'offensive' tweets

 

No further action is to be taken against Britain's first youth police and crime commissioner who stepped down from the role over offensive comments she made on Twitter, police said today.

Paris Brown, 17, was meant to be providing young people's views on policing but found her tweets being investigated amid claims they were homophobic, racist and violent.

A spokeswoman for Kent Police said today: "We have spoken to the CPS about our findings, and given them our view that this case does not pass the evidential threshold for prosecution; we will make no recommendations to them for charges and will take no further police action having discharged our duty to investigate."
