Dial 999 if you feel threatened by a man wolf-whistling at you in the street, says Alison Hernandez, police commissioner, Devon and Cornwall

Our thanks to Mike P for this. The start of the piece:

Women who are wolf-whistled in the street should report it to police, a crime commissioner has urged.

Devon and Cornwall commissioner Alison Hernandez said: ‘We are a bit clueless about the level of the problem.

She spoke after a young woman told her she was surprised to be told she could call 999 if she felt threatened.

Devon and Cornwall Police said it treated ‘sex or gender-based hate crimes or incidents seriously’.

Such offences included ‘misogynistic acts such as wolf-whistling or catcalling’, the force said, and it encouraged people to report them.

Only misandrous feminists (but I repeat myself) could consider wolf-whistling misogynistic.
