Internet 'troll' targeted children on Facebook
AN internet "troll" has been copying pictures of Notts children from Facebook and writing abusive comments about them online.
Three mums told the Post of their horror after their children became victims of the hateful campaign.
A trio of profiles on the site under apparently fake names began posting the pictures and making abusive and racist comments about the children.
In one case, photos of a disabled two-year-old were targeted with insults.

All three profiles have since been taken down by Facebook and Notts Police are investigating.
Campaign group Smile, Stop Hate Crime called the abuse "totally unacceptable".
Speaking about a comment aimed at a disabled child, a spokesman for the disability charity Scope said: "We know that it can be really upsetting for disabled people and their families when this word is used in a derogatory fashion."
