A Berkshire man has been jailed for posting abusive messages online about a schoolgirl after she committed suicide.
Sean Duffy, 25, of Reading, was handed an 18-week sentence for posts on social networking sites about Worcestershire teenager Natasha MacBryde.

Police said Duffy also posted abuse about dead teenagers in Northumberland, Gloucestershire and Staffordshire.
Duffy, of Grovelands Road, admitted two offences of "trolling" a term used to describe the trend of anonymously seeking to provoke outrage by posting insults and abuse online.
