On 3 March 2011 the Crown Court upheld the conviction of Paul Chambers for sending by a public electronic communications network a message of a "menacing character" contrary to s.127(1)(a) and (3) of the Communications Act 2003. Mr Chambers had been convicted after Tweeting:
"Crap! Robin Hood Airport is closed. You've got a week and a bit to get your shit together otherwise I am blowing your airport sky high!!"
The decision was overturned this morning on appeal. The judgment can be found here.
