A man has been detained by British police for a social media post that allegedly supported the terror attack that killed nearly 50 people in two mosques in New Zealand.

A man has been arrested in Britain for posting support for the man accused of the Christchurch terrorist attacks.

Police made "urgent enquiries" and a 24-year-old man from Oldham was then arrested on suspicion of sending malicious communications.

Forty-nine people were killed in shootings at two mosques in New Zealand on Friday.

A spokesperson for the police force said: "This is a very hard time for people".

"Many people are in deep shock and are anxious", he said. The events in New Zealand have reverberated around the world.

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