A man has been arrested in connection with a crowdfunding attempt which sought to raise £10,000 to have campaigner Gina Miller killed.
The Sunday Mirror reported in October that the page, which described the businesswoman who twice won Supreme Court cases challenging the government on Brexit, as a "traitor of democracy", had been up for six months.
It had not raised any money, and when alerted GoFundMe took it down and apologised for any distress to Ms Miller, who called the page "horrifying".
Northumbria Police has now confirmed that a 52-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of making malicious communications.
He was later released while investigations continue.Copyright: BBC

Cartmel Racecourse has apologised after a tweet went out on its social media account abusing the campaigner, Gina Miller.
Two abusive messages were posted after Ms Miller's appearance on the BBC TV programme Question Time.
The racecourse management says it has established that the post was not from a member of staff, but resulted from "unauthorised access" to its account, and an internal inquiry was taking place.
The offensive tweets have been deleted.
