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.
The teenager said that some of the messages had been taken out of context, that they were written some time ago, and that she was sorry if she had offended anyone.
