A statement released by the attorney general’s office read: “Between 3-5 February, Twitter exchanges on Joey Barton’s page which related to the forthcoming trial of John Terry were brought to the attention of the attorney general’s office.

“They have been considered in relation to any possible contempt of court they could create. In this instance the attorney has decided no action is necessary.”

A spokesman for the attorney general’s office said: “Although in this instance no action will be taken, we would like to remind those who publish material that proceedings for the John Terry trial are active. Any discussion of a live court case has the potential to interfere with its proper course.”
