Police are investigating social media messages written by Britain's first youth police and crime commissioner following complaints by the public.
Kent police officers will decide whether Paris Brown, 17, has committed any offences in writing apparently racist, violent and anti-gay tweets.

Tonight the force said: "Kent Police has today received a number of complaints about statements posted on social media. Kent Police officers are investigating circumstances to determine whether any offences have been committed."
