Neil Coyle, MP for Bermondsey & Old Southwark, was hounded with a stream of abuse on the social network after voting in favour of air strikes in the Commons.
The threatening tweet read: “u voted for air strikes, If I see u round ends…”.
The message ends with a string of ’emoji’ pictures of knives.
Mr Coyle reported the sender to the police, prompting him to delete the message.
