Denise Fergus calls for crack down after sickening James Bulger Facebook group

The mother of murdered toddler James Bulger has called for a crack down on 'internet trolls' after a sickening Facebook group was set up mocking her son's death.

James Bulger was two years old when he was abducted and murdered by Robert Thompson and Jon Venables in 1993.

A Facebook group was set up by a twisted troll called: "What happened to Jamie Bulger was f**king hilarious."

A 26-year old man from Chorley, Lancashire was being quizzed by detectives yesterday (TUES) and his computer has been seized for further investigations.

Denise Fergus, 43, said that more must be done to stop malicious cowards tormenting innocent people, while hiding behind their keyboard.

She said: "Its sickening to think that these warped people want to bring up all the terrible things that happened to James and worse still make a joke out of it.

"Its too easy for these malicious internet trolls to hide behind their keyboards, more powers should be given to the police to fight them.

"These sickos don't know or care about the difference between right and wrong.

"Its too easy for them to change their IP address and keep polluting the internet with horrible comments and harassing people."

Denise's husband Stuart, 37, added: "It was our nephew alerted us to the Internet Troll activity.

"They had set up a fan page called : "What happened to Jamie Bulger was f**king hilarious" and were encouraging people to 'like' their updates.

"The Police have told us that they have arrested a person and are questioning them in relation to the Facebook page. His computer has been seized."
