An allegation about a mum “misgendering” a transgender child on Twitter after a heated debate on Good Morning Britain has been withdrawn.
Caroline Farrow, 44, had been asked to attend an “voluntary interview” with police after they were contacted with a complaint after she appeared on the ITV show with Susie Green, who is mum to a transgender daughter.
However Surrey Police have now confirmed that the investigation into the complaint has now been dropped as the original allegation has been withdrawn.
They added that no further action would be taken in relation to this matter.
A statement for Surrey Police said: “We received an allegation on 15 October 2018 in relation to a number of tweets which were posted in October 2018.
“A thorough investigation was launched to establish whether any criminal offences had taken place.
“The original allegation has subsequently been withdrawn and no further action will be taken in relation to this matter.”
On the GMB, Farrow and Green had debated on whether transgender girls should be allowed in the Girl Guides. This came after the organisation hit out at claims that they were putting girls at risk by introducing a policy to allow trans people to join.
Following her appearance on GMB, Farrow reportedly described Green’s daughter as “him” in tweets made in October last year.
The Catholic mum-of-five has been asked to attend an interview with the police in Guildford, Surrey, after they received a complaint.
Farrow took to Twitter earlier this week to say she had been contacted by the police about tweets she had made following her appearance on GMB.
She tweeted: “Had a message from Guildford police tonight about my tweets following an appearance on @GMB with Susie Green and Piers Morgan. Susie Green has reported me for misgendering her daughter.
She later said: “I don’t know what I am suspected to have done. The only thing I can think of is that I may have referred to a 23-year-old transgender woman as someone’s ‘son’.”
