A controversial Facebook post from Nottinghamshire police warning women against going out alone at night has received a strong backlash online, and has since been deleted.

The Nottinghamshire Police have since issued a response in which they apologised for the "clumsy" miscommunication and had the intention "of trying to keep people safe".
