Police have said they will not take any action over a tweet from trans rights activists which saw them pose outside JK Rowling’s home, revealing her address.

The tweet included the group carrying placards targeting the Harry Potter author with slogans such as “trans liberation now”, however Police Scotland confirmed it wouldn’t be treated as criminal.

The 56-year-old had got in touch with officers following the photograph taken at her Edinburgh home in November but no criminality was established following enquiries, according to Edinburgh Live.
