Court papers will be served over 'Venables photos'

Images recently appeared on the social network site Twitter claiming to show an adult Jon Venables, who was released from jail on licence with a new identity in 2001.

The Attorney General said court papers will be served shortly to bring contempt proceedings against those who posted the pictures, which have since been taken down.
