A 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an investigation into homophobic messages posted on social media.
We received a report of a fake Twitter account being set up which was later used to send homophobic messages and an investigation was launched.
Det Insp Phil Jones said: â€œWe take all reports of hate crime extremely seriously and following our initial enquiries a 22-year-old manÂ has been arrested and is currently in custody for questioning.
â€œI would encourage any victims of hate crime to report incidents to us as soon as possible so they can be thoroughly investigated.â€ Weâ€™ve just completed a three week awareness campaign to inform the public about what hate crime is, what they can do if they are a victim of this type of offence and the support available to them.
