Threats to player Jamie Vardy's child are probed

By Margaret Davis

Police are investigating after Twitter trolls made sexual threats against the one-year-old daughter of England footballer Jamie Vardy.

The graphic abuse came after the Leicester striker's fiancee posted pictures of the toddler wearing a Foxes shirt ahead of their match against Southampton on Sunday.

Leicestershire Police launched an investigation into the shocking threats after a formal complaint was made yesterday.

Rebekah Nicholson tweeted the shots of her daughter wearing the blue T-shirt with "Daddy" emblazoned on the back, which prompted rape threats on the social networking site.

Leicester City football club called the abuse "shocking".
