A TEENAGER arrested in connection with offensive tweets about the MH17 Malaysian Airlines disaster will face no further action.

The 19-year-old had been arrested on suspicion of making a malicious communication after a number of messages were posted on social media following Sunderland’s 8-0 defeat to Southampton, on October 18.

The teenager was bailed until yesterday and now Northumbria Police have confirmed that he has been released without charge.

“Following an investigation the man arrested on suspicion of making a malicious communication and bailed will now face no further police action,” a police spokesman said.
