A police force has apologised after two officers allegedly left an abusive message on the phone of a woman who had made an assault allegation.
Alex Faragher, 19, of Birmingham, overheard herself apparently being referred to in sexist terms during an expletive-strewn conversation, the Birmingham Mail reported.
The officers did not appear to know they were leaving a voicemail.
West Midlands Police said a gross misconduct investigation was ongoing.
Ms Faragher told the paper she had contacted the police in January.
