British fundraising hero Captain Sir Tom Moore was trolled after becoming famous around the globe for raising millions for health workers, his family has said.
"I couldn't tell him, because how do you rationalise to a 100-year-old man that something so incredibly good can attract such horror?"
She also spoke about the online trolling her family received over the previous year.
Bradford Council is supporting a fundraising campaign to install a bronze sculpture of Captain Sir Tom Moore.
The court charge states: "On February 3 2021 at Waverly Court, Lanark, you Joseph Kelly did cause to be sent by means of a public electronic communications network a post to the public using social media that was grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character, and that did utter offensive remarks about Captain Sir Tom Moore, now deceased". In an interview, the World War Two hero's daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore, opened up on the online abuse the family suffered.
"We went to restaurants (because we could there) and he ate fish on the beach and what a wonderful thing to do".

Throughout his stay in hospital, Sir Tom was regularly tested for coronavirus, and all of those tests returned a negative result.
"I said to him in the last few days, "so what do you want to eat when you come home", and we decided it was steak and chips".
It is hoped that is will eventually be installed in Keighley as a tribute to Captain Tom and now Bradford Council is supporting the effort to get it moved there.
"He was really excited about coming out for steak and chips and getting his frame back outside and his walker", she said.
"They will never make this fantastic thing negative, not ever".
Ingram-Moore said she and other family member's kept th hurtful comments away from her father who died on February 2 after testing positive for coronavirus.
