Youth police and crime commissioner Paris Brown quits

Help

The country's first youth police and crime commissioner has resigned from her £15,000-a-year post less than a week after being appointed.

The departure of Paris Brown, 17, follows the discovery of a series of comments she posted on social networking sites between the ages of 14 and 16 which are being investigated by police.

In a statement, the teenager said: "I have made this decision after a great deal of thought and consultation with my family."
