Youth police rep sorry for tweets: 'I was naive and immature... I apologise'

Kent's first Youth Police and Crime Commissioner Paris Brown,17, has apologised for writing tweets that were inappropriate. A Sunday paper accused her of writing messages on Twitter that were racist and homophobic, as well as offensive messages about drugs and drinking.
