A MAN has been arrested by police for inciting public disorder after setting up a Facebook page encouraging a riot in Warrington.
The 22-year-old man, believed to be Pezz Keenan, from Warrington is currently being questioned by police.
And police say they have been working with the social networking site to remove the page.
It was encouraging violence in the town tomorrow evening.
A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: “Cheshire Police rely on information from communities and we have been contacted this morning by people raising concerns over several entries on social networking sites. “These entries are believed to be inciting people to commit violent public disorder.
“In addition officers have worked with the social networking site to close down the pages, as quickly as possible.
“Cheshire Police want to reassure members of the public that those people who use social networking sites as a means of inciting unlawful behaviour will be traced and be brought before the courts.”
