Piers Morgan reveals police are taking vile death threat from online troll 'seriously' as he gives a statement

PIERS Morgan has revealed police are taking a vile death threat against him and his family seriously.

Officers visited Piers's home tonight to take a statement after a sick yob commented on a picture of him and his son yesterday threatening to kill them.

Taking to Twitter, Piers gave an update, writing: "Well they’re [police] definitely taking this seriously.. they’re round my house now taking a statement."

It came in response to a Twitter follower who had written: "Unfortunately Piers when it comes to social media the police do very little. That's what I found in Merseyside anyway. They don't have the resources or time to trace accounts."

After being targeted by the troll, Piers came out fighting and asked for help revealing their identity.

He wrote: "Another day, another death threat… this one from someone using the name ‘stevienewcombe’ on Instagram. Anyone know who he is? Let’s see how big and tough he feels when I give him the exposure he deserves."

Piers followed it with: "UPDATE: I’ve reported these death threats to @metpoliceuk and look forward to hearing back from them. I’m also keen to hear what steps @[email protected] are taking to identify the person who made the death threats on their platform & has now deleted their account."

Yesterday the Good Morning Britain star's son Spencer shared a screen grab of the grave threat.

It read: "Your a marked man, calling the police, big tech, or beefing up security isn't going to stop us getting to you, this isn't a threat piers it's a promise, your getting killed."

They added: "Watch your back spencermorgan if you dont get your dad, your getting it or your mum is."

Spencer, 27, hit back: "Good luck with that, b***h."

While Spencer remained unmoved by the threat, his followers were shaken.

One wrote: "Oh my god this is terrible!! Report!!!!"

Another posted: "Absolutely disgusting no one should have to put up with that."

While a third said: "I don’t know how you can cope with that . Unbelievable how horrible some people are."

The picture targeted by the troll was a selfie taken by Piers on a walk with Spencer in Holland Park.

The pair, who often clash over their views on current affairs on social media, enjoyed another lively debate during the outing.

Piers wrote: "Lockdown debate walk. The water was a calming influence."

The GMB star is off work this week, but that hasn't stopped him taking an interest in what is happening in the studio.

Watching at home yesterday, the journalist hit out at commentator Dominique Samuels, 22, after she argued against coronavirus vaccine passports as a way of helping the economy open up again.

He wrote: "I think Dominique should surrender her normal passport. It’s ‘ridiculous’ that she should be mandated to use one before she flies & a terrible attack on her freedom. Hand it back, Dominique and enjoy your freedom never to travel again."
