Yobs are filming themselves harassing female police officers in a 'deeply disrespectful' TikTok trend.
Users on the social media app are filming on-duty officers while making flirty, sometimes intimidating comments, with some clips getting thousands of views.
Police chiefs have hit out at the trend, saying it hinders vital police work and invades officers' privacy.
The stunts have become so prevalent that a round-up video collating several of them, captioned 'Roadmen flirt with female police officers' followed by a laughing emoji, has been viewed 662,000 times.

More than 50 reports of staff suffering 'disgraceful abuse' through messages and imagery posted on TikTok have been received by the Association of School and College Leaders, and unions have warned that the harmful videos are causing teachers to leave their work.
