Online hate crimes should be treated as seriously as abuse committed face-to-face, prosecutors in England and Wales have been told.

 

Revising its guidance for prosecutors, the Crown Prosecution Service said the impact of tweeting abuse can be as "equally devastating" as shouting it.

 

The guidance includes offences against bisexual people for the first time.

 

Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders said online abuse can fuel "dangerous hostility".

A hate crime is an offence motivated by a "hostility or prejudice", including racism, sexism or homophobia.
