A MAN who allegedly sent a “grossly offensive tweet” about Captain Sir Tom Moore has today been unmasked.

Joseph Kelly is accused of calling for the war hero to “burn” after he tragically passed away earlier this month aged 100.

The 35-year-old has been pictured for the first time after he was charged in connection with the message.

Kelly, of Glasgow, was not present when his case was called at Lanark Sheriff Court yesterday.

Captain Tom became a beacon of hope during the early days of the pandemic with his Herculean charity efforts.

The hero veteran set out to raise £1,000 for NHS Charities Together by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday last April.

But his efforts struck a chord with the nation and donations flooded in, resulting in a mammoth fundraising total of more than £32 million.

Tragically, Captain Tom died in Bedford Hospital earlier this month after battling Covid and pneumonia, with tributes pouring in from around the world.

She said she shielded her dad from months of online abuse because it would’ve “broken his heart”. 

In an interview shown on BBC Breakfast, Hannah said: “I think it would have broken his heart honestly if we’d said to him people are hating us.

“Because how do you rationalise to a 100-year-old man that something so incredibly good can attract such horror.

“So we contained it within the four of us and we said we wouldn’t play to […] that vile minority, we wouldn’t play to them, we’re not because we are talking to the massive majority of people who we connect with.”

The World War Two veteran was “excited about steak and chips and getting back out on his walker”, she said.

Hannah added: “He was really excited about coming out for steak and chips and getting his frame back outside and his walker.

“The last real conversation was positive and about carrying on and that’s a lovely place to be.”
