Venables tweeter: 'Love them to take me to court'

After he was contacted by the Attorney General's office Dean Liddle posted the following tweets:

Just been served with court papers for posting picture of sick child killers Venables and Thompson. What a joke.

Love them to take me to court. I'll tell them exactly why I posted pictures of sick child killers.

But he quickly changed his tune when he received the letter saying that he would be prosecuted.

He then wrote and apologised, saying he had not fully understood the terms of the injunction and that he had seen the same images on hundreds of other sites.
