A Scotland Yard sergeant is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police's disciplinary body regarding comments he allegedly posted on Twitter about Margaret Thatcher following her death.
He reportedly tweeted from the account @thinbluespeck, which has now been deleted: "Goodnight Twitter. The world is a better place today now that c*** is dead. Now for Cameron, May and Osborne."

The officer reported this matter on Wednesday 10 April to the Directorate of Professional Standards who is now looking at this.
The officerworks in an operational support role within service.
