A man has been charged with posting an offensive tweet about the Malaysia Airlines plane disaster.
Northumbria Police said Mitchell Tace Chapman, 18, of Pegwood Road, Sunderland, will appear before magistrates in the city on August 11.
He is charged with making a malicious communication, which police said is in connection with "remarks posted on Twitter relating to two of the men who died" on flight MH17.
It is understood the two men were Newcastle United football fans John Alder, 63, and Liam Sweeney, 28, who were flying to New Zealand to watch their team play pre-season friendlies.
The mother of the three Australian children killed on flight MH17 told a memorial service her "arms would always be reaching for them."
A woman has apparently posted pictures of herself on social media with mascara looted from the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash site.
A large section of plane wreckage and everyday carry-on items like chocolates remain scattered among the wild flowers at the crash site.
