North West MP wants action against 'Trolls'

Liverpool's Steve Rotheram tells Heart he wants tougher punishments for Facebook abusers

Just a day after the death of a Wirral teenager, people were leaving 'sickening' messages on a Facebook tribute page set up in her memory.

Georgia Varley was killed after falling between a train and the platform at Liverpool's James Street Station back in September 2011.

Numerous messages and even distressing photographs were posted by so called 'Trolls' who scour the internet to leave such posts on pegs to remember people who've died.

Walton MP Steve Rotheram has been telling Heart that he's now working with parliament and the social network to make laws tougher.
