Youth PCC Paris Brown apologises over 'inappropriate' tweets


Britain's first youth police and crime commissioner has made a tearful apology for what she accepts were "inappropriate language and views" that she posted on Twitter.

Paris Brown, 17, from Sheerness in Kent, made comments about gay people and drugs, which have since been deleted.

Miss Brown is paid £15,000 a year for her role with Kent Police and was appointed by Police and Crime Commissioner Ann Barnes.
