Planning a girls night out in London? Worried about safety? Here follows some sensible advice and some offending (in my view) ones. And guess where the not so sensible ones comes from.

Eat before & during the evening

Pace yourself; drink plenty of water

Never leave your drink unattended and Never accept drinks from strangers

Never get into one of those unlicensed cabs which loiter outside the clubs.

Always stay together, look out for one another

and now for the advice from Sussex police, “make sure you’re wearing nice pants and that you’ve recently had a wax.” Apparently this is meant to be a gossipy tongue and cheek style advice. I can’t find this gem of an advice on their website though. I am sure I am not the only one who finds it offensive that the Sussex police have wasted their precious resources on producing this leaflet?

    Yes, I have just read this in the Metro and find it utterly offensive. Just been on their website but it’s nowhere to be found. If anyone does find it anywhere, please let me know.

    Thank you so much Jinx, so it is true after all. Thanks

    Jinx, I don’t see any reference to the wearing nice pants and waxing part there. Wonder if they’ve edited it following the outcry or am I just being blind here
