Woman charged over "offensive" Facebook message

A 23-year-old woman has been charged with allegedly sending what police are calling a "grossly offensive" message on Facebook.

Michaela Kathleen Turner from Southsea was arrested at her home on Friday evening after the post was uploaded to Facebook on Wednesday evening following the Woolwich terror attack.

She was charged overnight with an offence contrary to section 127 of the Communication Act 2003 and has now been released on bail to appear before Portsmouth Magistrates Court on June 7.
