Venables Twitter picture 'possible contempt of court'

The AGO has been alerted to a possible contempt of court.

We are liaising with the MoJ and others to establish the facts.

We can neither confirm nor deny whether the pictures in question are of Jon Venables.

It should be noted, there is a worldwide injunction in place which prevents the publication of any images or information purporting to identify anyone as Jon Venables.
