A Manchester United fan who posted a picture of his tattoo ridiculing the Hillsborough disaster is causing uproar after a man who threatened him about the callous gesture was arrested.
Danny Hornby, 22, posted a picture of a tattoo on his back that read ‘96wne’ – where 'wne' stands for was not enough – and incensed Liverpool football fans.
The 1989 FA Cup semi-final tragedy left 96 fans dead and Mr Hornby received a mountain of abuse over Twitter and a 20-year-old Fleetwood man has been arrested by police.
A Lancashire police spokesman said: "A 20-year-old man from Fleetwood has been arrested on suspicion of intentionally encouraging/assisting the commission of an either way offence – incitement – in connection with comments made on a social media site and has been bailed pending further inquiries."
The United fan is allegedly promised to cover up the tattoo and post a fresh image of his back on his Twitter page.
