Ennis-Hill 'abuse' tweets probed

Police are investigating abusive tweets about Jessica Ennis-Hill after the Olympic gold medallist said Sheffield United should not re-sign convicted rapist Ched Evans.

Ennis-Hill issued a statement last night saying she would want her name removed from a stand at the football club's Bramall Lane ground if the League One club welcomed the Welsh international back following his conviction for raping a 19-year-old woman in a hotel room.

Today, South Yorkshire Police said: "South Yorkshire Police can confirm they are investigating reports of abusive tweets.

"Officers are making efforts to contact the individual concerned, but have launched an investigation into the posts."
