A teenager who posted offensive comments on Twitter about the Glasgow bin lorry crash which killed six people has been let off with a caution.
Ross Loraine, 19, from Sunderland, was arrested after a number of people complained about his tweet just hours after the tragedy on December 22.
Northumbria Police said he had been arrested on suspicion of making a malicious communication after he handed himself in following the outcry.
A police spokesman said: "A 19-year-old man has been given a caution for making a malicious communication."

A teenager who was injured in the Glasgow bin lorry crash has described how she was thrown several feet after being hit by the heavy truck.
Danielle Dawson, 13, recalled hearing a scream and said after that she "could just see green" as the vehicle came towards her.
Miss Dawson told the Sunday Mail she had met friends Alix Stewart, 14, and Irene McAuley, 18, near the statue of Duke of Wellington in nearby Royal Exchange Square.
I heard a scream and just turned and looked over my shoulder. I was standing closest to the gallery. Irene was in the middle and Alix was on the outside by the pavement.
The lorry was right there. I could just see green. I was thrown three or four metres.
In total, six people were killed and 10 more injured after the lorry lost control in the city's Queen Street and George Square almost two weeks ago.

Hundreds of mourners have gathered at the funeral of three members of the same family who were killed when a bin lorry crashed in Glasgow before Christmas.
Erin McQuade, 18, and her grandparents Jack Sweeney, 68 and Lorraine Sweeney, 69, all died when the out-of-control refuse vehicle ploughed into pedestrians in the city's George Square three days before Christmas.
Erin's brothers Liam, 15, and Aiden, 14, and little sister Niamh, six, were all at the service. Glasgow City Council leader Gordon Matheson, Scottish Justice Secretary Michael Matheson and Jackie Baillie, the MSP for Dumbarton, were also among the mourners.
A funeral for three members of the same family killed in the Glasgow bin lorry crash is set to take place later this morning.
A service for Jack and Lorraine Sweeney and their granddaughter Erin McQuade will be held at St Patrick's RC Church in Dumbarton at 10am.
The family were killed, along with three others, when a bin lorry veered out of control near George Square on 22nd December. Ten people were also injured during the incident.
The mass, which will be led by the Archbishop of Glasgow Philip Tartaglia, will be followed by private burials.
More than 1,000 people have attended a vigil to remember victims of the Glasgow bin lorry crash near the scene of the incident.
The vigil took place in Glasgow's Royal Exchange Square, adjoining Queen Street, where hundreds of bouquets of flowers and candles have been placed in memory of the victims.
People also held lit candles as they remembered the six people who were killed and 10 injured when the lorry lost control in Queen Street and George Square on Monday.
Four people, including two teenage girls, are still being treated in hospital following the accident and are all in stable condition.
The vigil was organised through the Facebook pages Support the George Square Crash and RIP Glasgow Lorry Crash Victims.
Four people, including two teenage girls, are still being treated in hospital following the Glasgow bin lorry crash, which claimed the lives of six people. Three females - a 14-year old girl, an 18-year-old and a woman aged 64 - are all being cared for at Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
The 14-year-old girl had been left seriously ill after the accident on Monday, in which an out-of-control bin lorry ploughed into pedestrians in the city centre, but all three of the women are now said to be in a stable condition.
The remaining patient, a 57-year-old man who is being treated in the Western Infirmary, is also stable.
A statement released by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde this morning said: "Four patients remain in two Glasgow hospitals following Monday's tragic incident in George Square.
"Three patients remain in Glasgow Royal Infirmary: a 14-year-old girl, an 18-year-old female and a 64-year-old woman. All are stable. "A 57-year-old man is being treated at the Western Infirmary and remains stable."
The victims of the crash were yesterday remembered at Christmas services across the city, with candles lit and prayers said for all those affected by the tragedy.
