Social Media

To report a crime call South Wales Police on 101.

If it’s an emergency, you’re at risk, or you feel threatened, call 999 and ask for the police.

Unpleasant comments about people on social media sites are not dealt with by the police unless there is a criminal offence involved.

Offences might include threats to kill, threats to cause damage, criminal conduct amounting to harassment and comments that incite racial hatred, violence or rioting. If this is the case call South Wales Police on 101 to report it.

For general unpleasant or inappropriate posts, in the first instance, you should contact the social media site on which the comments have been made and ask for their assistance (contact details are below).

If you think you have been libelled to the extent you wish to take action then you should consult with a solicitor.
