Patrick Barclay in Twitter storm over Heysel tweet

Sports journalist Patrick Barclay has run into a Twitterstorm after hitting back at a Liverpool fan, who criticised him for having worked for a Murdoch paper, with a tweet about the Heysel stadium disaster.

Despite the Twitter backlash, which saw Heysel trending, Barclay tweeted: "The usual twisters are active, I hear - "he's mocking the dead" - but those who can read plain English know I wasn't mocking. The opposite."

He later tweeted: "Sorry that some people found my reply yesterday inappropriate - certainly meant to cause no offence."
