Piers Morgan reveals Facebook are investigating his death threats as he beefs up security at his ‘Fort Knox’ home

The Sun

PIERS Morgan has revealed Facebook are investigating his death threats as he beefs up security at his "Fort Knox" home.

A vile troll used Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, to issue a sickening threat to him and his family last month.

Speaking on This Morning today, Piers, 55, looked emotional as he thanked the police for their help and for working with the social media platform to find the troll, after he immediately reported the abuse.

Telling This Morning's Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that the online troll had "crossed a line", he said: "There is a line. Overt racism, homophobia, transphobia, but to have people actually make specific death threats.

"What I did was I called the police and they were brilliant. They came round and I said 'I have no idea who they are but I want to hold them accountable.'

"Facebook got involved, I know one of the top bosses there, and they contacted me and they agreed to work with the police on it.

"My place is like Fort Knox now, thanks to the police and I'm grateful for that."
