The UK's first youth police and crime commissioner, Paris Brown, has resigned from her post following criticism of messages she posted on Twitter.

The 17-year-old, who was appointed last week, said she was "quitting in the interests of the young people of Kent".

Police are investigating her over tweets she posted between the ages of 14 and 16 which could be considered racist and homophobic.
