A man has been arrested for posting an inappropriate comment on a Facebook memorial page following the road deaths of three teenagers in Hertfordshire.

The 37-year-old from Broxbourne was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of malicious communication.

The victims - one aged 19 and two aged 17 - died following a collision between a car and a lorry on the A10, near Turnford, on 9 November.

The man has been bailed until 15 December.

He has been banned from any direct or indirect contact with the crash victims' families or members of any online forum connected with their deaths.

Ashley Jones, 19, from Canvey Island, Essex, and 17-year-olds Harry Ferrand and Jack Boyton, both from Enfield, north London, were all pronounced dead at the scene.
