Police have launched an investigation into alleged homophobic remarks on Twitter which were directed towards rugby union referee Nigel Owens.
The comments were posted after he refereed the England v France Six Nations match at Twickenham on Saturday, police said.
Dyfed-Powys Police said in a statement: “This follows a number of complaints made by members of the public. The tweet concerned has now been removed from the page. The investigation is at an early stage.”
Some nutter says “botty boy” online and Plod gets involved?
Nowt to do with Owens, my comments, bloody good referee that he is. But Jebus, how has the Kingdom come to this, that mere insult is a matter for the law?
