A group of builders have been sacked for wolf-whistling and making lewd comments at passers by.

The owners of The Wheatsheaf Pub in Sandbach, Cheshire, took the step after being told about a number of ‘deplorable’ incidents involving some of the men working on the building, reports The Mirror.

Katie Bell, the boss of the Angel Beauty salon opposite the pub, told the Manchester Evening News: 

We saw them hanging out of the windows of the pub shouting obscenities at anyone passing by – mums, kids, everyone.

I’ve never seen anything like it, it was like they’d never seen a woman before.

The builders are then reported to have made a phone call directly to the salon.

They told Katie they’d spotted her in the window and – like all horrible chauvinists – proceeded to tell her ‘what kind of things they wanted to do to her’.

Understandably disgusted, Katie – along with other local business owners – rang the owner of The Wheatsheaf to complain.

Katie said: 

He was amazing – he apologised on their behalf, came straight down to the pub and from what I understand they were sacked on the spot.

Owner Andrew Pear said the group of labourers were identified and dismissed.

He said: 

It was absolutely deplorable behaviour that we wouldn’t condone in any circumstances, but thankfully we were able to nip it in the bud very quickly.

You’d think that in this day and age this kind of behaviour is completely socially unacceptable.

You’d think so, but unfortunately some people are just dickheads.
