Teen given caution for offensive tweet about lorry crash

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."

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.
