Police have spoken to a teenager accused of posing with guns and posting racist rants on social media.

They launched an investigation after a tabloid newspaper claimed the 17-year-old from West Norfolk, who is a member of a rifle and pistol club, made threats to kill muslims online.

Today a spokesman said: “We are aware of an article, which was published in a national newspaper on Sunday, February 18.

“As a result officers gave words of advice to a male aged in his late teens and are satisfied that no offences have been committed.”

The youth is a member of a gun and pistol shooting club, for which a firearms certificate is not required.
