Three arrests for Facebook 'racial abuse' of police officer
Three people have been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred after a photograph and comments about a police officer were posted on Facebook.
The officer was on duty in Bedwas, Caerphilly county, over the weekend when the alleged abuse was posted.
Two men - one from Graig-y-Rhacca, aged 33 and one from Lansbury Park, 31, plus a woman from Aberbargoed, 30, have been released on bail.
Gwent Police warned people about the messages they post on social media.
Supt Marc Budden said: "This behaviour, whether in person, via text, social media or online, is unacceptable and there will always be consequences."
