LAWYERS for Britain’s first youth police and crime commissioner have written to a chief constable claiming a “wholly disproportionate” response to allegedly offensive comments she made on Twitter.

Paris Brown, 17, had her mobile phone seized and was interviewed under caution by Special Branch investigating the material, they said. She was forced to stand down from her £15,000-a-year role earlier this month following publication of the tweets. Yesterday it emerged that Paris’s lawyers, Olswang, have written to the Kent chief constable about the investigation.
