Teale was sitting outside of the Nottingham Conference Centre on Thursday when the incident occurred. The report was soon posted to Facebook.
 

BBC journalist Sarah Teale gets sexual obscenities shouted at her while filming a report about harassment of women...

Posted by BBC Radio Nottingham on Friday, September 25, 2015


"An online study showed that a shocking 95 percent 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," she says in the report.

Before she can move to her next line, a man or two men off camera can be heard shouting something at Teale. She pauses, perhaps in disbelief, then says, "Yeah, like that," before opening her hands in a manner that says 'can you believe this?'

After the report, Teale told the BBC that she was "genuinely shocked" by the catcall, and labeled it "irony" in a Twitter post.

"It's not banter, it's not funny and no-one should have to put up with it."

More than one commenter suggested the clip was staged, but Teale said that that was "absolute nonsense," adding "It's fairly obvious from my reaction that it wasn't staged."
