Britain's first youth police and crime commissioner, who stepped down from the role over offensive comments she made on Twitter, is "pleased" police are taking no further action against her, her lawyer said today.
Paris Brown, 17, was meant to be providing young people's views on policing but instead had her own mobile phone seized as officers investigated her tweets amid claims they were homophobic, racist and violent.
It has emerged that lawyers representing Miss Brown have written to the chief constable of Kent Police complaining of their "wholly disproportionate" response.
A statement from law firm Olswang today said:
"Paris and her family are pleased this matter has been brought to a close. She has had a difficult time recently, in part due to the media and inappropriate police scrutiny."
