A man has been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred in a message posted on Twitter.
Police say the 36-year-old from Maryport is currently in custody.
The arrest followed a report from a member of the public about a tweet posted yesterday evening.
A tongue-in-cheek Facebook comment by a woman from Allonby - written from the perspective of her pet dog - has been shared thousands of times on social media.
The post, 'written' by Carol's springer spaniel Jasmine, talks of her "utter dismay at your store for being so clean and tidy".
It says Jasmine feels unwanted, because she's not needed to clean up biscuits from the floor:
It's been shared thousands of times, and has attracted nearly 3,000 comments:
Cumbria Police have issued a warning to social media users after around 400 people turned up to a 15th birthday party in Egremont.
Police believe that the uninvited youths turned up after seeing the party publicised on a social media site.
Officers were called to Market Hall in Egremont at around 7pm on Saturday night (11th May), after reports that a large group of youths were drinking in the street and causing a disturbance.
The party organisers had expected around 150 guests to attend.
Police spent several hours dealing with the incident, with some youngsters throwing bottles at passing cars.
A large amount of alcohol was recovered from people who were aged under the age of 18, and many had to be taken home as they were in a "drunk and incapable state."
