They called for urgent action to be taken by Twitter to aid the police in identifying the person or persons responsible.

Police have taken the claims seriously and searched the houses for more than two hours but found nothing.

Antony, was also insulted over his Jewish heritage. He said: “The messages made me feel sick to my stomach. I was scared.
“I understand that working in my job means that you can be a target for trolls, but this was disgusting. The police were called and they came to my home and made sure we were protected.”

Duncan added: “I felt extremely frightened for my mother’s wellbeing.”

Both men are now calling for Twitter trolls to be named, shamed and prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others.
