Piers Morgan takes down GMB trolls

Disgusted as he scrolled through his phone, Piers snapped at the Twitter trolls: “Just stop it!

“To all those trolling them, honestly, I’m reading this stuff, it’s making me puke.

“Leave them alone. Until you’ve had a child taken from you and potentially abused and murdered, just shut up.”

Piers then said to co-star Susanna Reid: “A lot of the public are supportive.

“But [Kate and Gerry] also get exposed to the most disgusting abuse.

“[They are exposed to] the most vile allegations suggestions – that they were involved and so on.”

“I’m reading now, immediately the reaction on Twitter that we’re getting to this story, and it’s just callous.

“Horrible wretched people who like to revel in the misery of the McCanns.”
