A BBC TV reporter was harassed in the street while filming a report about street harassment.
Sarah Teale was filming outside a conference on the subject in Nottingham when a man directed a sexual comment towards her.
The East Midlands Today reporter said she was “genuinely shocked” by what the man said.
She said: “It’s not banter, it’s not funny and no-one should have to put up with it.”
In the clip, Teale can be heard explaining: “An online study showed that a shocking 95% of people said they had been harassed, jeered at, or had obscenities shouted at them in the street and a large proportion said they’d also been groped or grabbed inappropriately in public.”
Then, as a comment is made, she can be seen pointing ahead and saying: “Yeah, like that.”
