Conservative MP Mike Weatherley (Hove and Portslade) has called in police after receiving a death threat on Twitter. It followed him sending a letter to David Cameron asking the PM to speak out against Russia's anti-gay legislation.
The newpaper Pink News tweeted an article about the letter, to which a Twitter user replied including the words "KILL WEATHERLEY". The MP says such 'trolls' must not be allowed to hide behind their online identities and reported the threat to Sussex Police.
The force confirmed it is investigating the matter.
