Ross Lister had been a serving PC in Barrow for around three years when he was dismissed following a misconduct hearing held on September 27 at Cumbria Constabulary headquarters.

Details of the comment were not made public while the Crown Prosecution Service considered whether Mr Lister should be charged with an offence of posting malicious communications.

Last week, prosecutors announced that "the comment made on social media does not meet the very high threshold necessary for a criminal prosecution" following a further review of the evidence.

On a post about terrorists and in response to one comment about consequences, former PC Lister wrote: "What? Wrap them in bacon?"
