A Kent man has been arrested after allegedly putting a picture of a burning poppy on Facebook. Kent Police said the man, from Aylesham, was arrested on suspicion of malicious telecommunications and was last night in police custody awaiting interview by officers.

The arrest came after thousands of people wore poppies yesterday at services across the country to mark Remembrance Sunday.
