Vile internet troll unmasked after abusive tweets to MP
AN MP has revealed why he called in Lancashire Police to catch a “vile” internet troll who sent him abuse via Twitter.
John Woodcock said he feared for himself and his family after receiving comments from an account which officers traced to Penwortham.
Greg Taylor, a senior official in the Mayor of London’s office, was cautioned by Lancashire Police yesterday in connection with the tweets and has resigned from his job.
