A man was arrested in Oldham yesterday for posting support for the New Zealand terrorist attack on social media as new evidence emerged of a growing threat from the far right in Britain.

Greater Manchester Police said that officers made the arrest after becoming aware of a post on social media that "made reference and support for the bad events in New Zealand".

"This is a very hard time for people".

GMP said where "people cross the line, we will take robust action, which may include arrest and prosecution".

"Many people are in deep shock and are anxious", he said.

At least 49 people were killed when a gunman opened fire on worshippers during Friday prayers at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques.

He said: "It is at times like this that, as a community, we stand together".

Brenton Tarrant, 28, from Australia, is alleged to have live-streamed the terror attack in Christchurch and outlined his anti-immigrant motives in a manifesto posted online. The events in New Zealand have reverberated around the world.
