Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott has reported a tweet directed towards Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May, suggesting she should be beheaded with a light sabre 'or whatever you can put your hands on'.
The MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington reported the tweet to Twitter and the Metropolitan Police.
Abbott's tweet ran: "Dear @Twitter and @metpoliceuk I would like to report this tweet that went up this evening. It has since been deleted but not before it was screenshot by my staff. No doubt @gregwebsteruk thought it amusing to call for my beheading on this thread. I do not."
Parliamentary Police have been informed of the matter.
