Wolf whistling and harassing people in the street is to be made a specific offence with sentences of up to two years in prison.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman announced the move as she insisted perpetrators who stop women feeling 'safe' will face the 'consequences they deserve'.

It will cover behaviour that deliberately harasses, alarms, or distresses a person in a public space.

That can range from wolf whistling and cat-calling to stalking and persistent sexist verbal abuse. 

The government is adopting a private members' Bill put forward by former Cabinet minister Greg Clark.
