Police investigate heinous troll who made fun of Sean Cox and the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy


The report contained graphic images of supporters fighting for their lives on the terrace of Leppings Lane, as well as insulting comments.

Police are investigating a Twitter troll whose disgusting posts ridiculed the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy.

Merseyside police are investigating the troll following the publication of offensive posts on Twitter.

The report produced a series of offensive tweets on Monday night, just two days before the 31st anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy.

There were also vile comments about Sean Cox, a popular Liverpool supporter who almost died after being attacked by Roma fans outside Anfield.

ECHO has decided not to quote the tweets due to their shameful nature.

Sick statements were published along with pictures of men, women and children who were trapped and lying on the terrace after escaping from the pens on the Hillsborough pitch.

They also referred to Mr Cox and an attack on the night of a Champions League game that left him with life-changing injuries.

Lou has vowed to take on the “spineless cowards” who publish abuse online.

The user continued to post offensive tweets after being challenged by others, including Lou Brookes, whose brother Andrew died as a result of the tragedy.

When it emerged on Wednesday that a teenager from Bedfordshire had been warned by police about a tweet mocking those affected by the tragedy, she told Echo: “It’s absolutely disgusting and repugnant. Our 96 and the survivors have not harmed anyone.

“They did nothing wrong that day. Hillsborough could have happened to any soccer fan, and every soccer fan in the country should thank us Hillsborough families and the survivors. It is our merit that every football fan returns home safe and sound to their families.

“Hillsborough would have happened that day, no matter what teams were playing.

“Whether you are a Liverpool fan or not, these are 96 innocent souls who did not harm anyone.

Ninety-six Liverpool fans died when a terrace collapse occurred during the club’s FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

“Football fans must keep the score on the field. This just shows how sick and twisted some so-called soccer fans are to bend so low that they Photoshop dying and dead people to score points and make jokes.
