17-year old arrested over Tom Daley twitter abuse

A 17-year-old has been arrested while police investigate a series of vile messages sent to Olympic diver Tom Daley on Twitter…

Dorset Police said in a tweet early this morning (July 31): “Regarding tweets to @TomDaley1994 – 17-year-old man arrested this morning at a guest house in the Weymouth area. Enquiries continue.”

Tom became subjected to abuse last night (July 30), following his impressive fourth place finish in the synchronised diving.
He retweeted a message from a particular user, who shockingly referred to Daley’s late father by saying: “You let your dad down i hope you know that.”

The heartless individual apologised and claimed that he didn’t know that Tom’s Dad had passed away, but then continued to post abusive messages.

He called Daley a “c**t”, and a “little p***y”, he added: “i’m going to find you and i’m going to drown you in the pool you cocky tw*t your a nobody people like you make me sick”

Tom didn’t let the idiocy of the situation get to him, and later tweeted his followers: “Thank you everyone for all your support before, during and after the synchro, the atmosphere was incredible! Now focussing on the individual.”
