A hand-written "death threat" letter has been sent to a bisexual Kent councillor who last year received a homophobic message on his mobile phone.

The letter, with a Medway postmark, was received on Saturday at the Birchington home of John Worrow, an Independent councillor on Thanet District Council.

He gave the letter to Kent Police, who said they are investigating.

In May, a Tory councillor was cautioned by police for leaving the homophobic message on Mr Worrow's phone.

Ken Gregory was also suspended from Thanet's Conservative group for six months, but cleared of misconduct by the council.
