A man has been arrested over an offensive tweet about the bin lorry crash in Glasgow in which six people died and ten were injured.
The posting was reported just before 21:00 GMT on Monday and deleted a short time later, police said.
A 19-year-old man from Sunderland handed himself into police on Monday evening and was arrested on suspicion of making a malicious communication.
He has not been formally named and has been bailed pending further inquiries.
