    Not sure if she's having a dig at comments made in some national newspapers following yesterday's story, but Nottinghamshire Chief Constable Sue Fish has reiterated the force's commitment to investigating misogynistic hate crime.

    In today's statement she said: "Claiming we are focusing on wolf-whistling and cat-calling does nothing more than trivialise our intentions.

    "We want to encourage women to feel that they can report incidents where they have been made to feel intimidated, or frightened by this unacceptable unwanted behaviour."
