A man in France has been given a 300-euro (£270) fine for sexual aggression under a new law against street harassment.
He slapped a woman’s bottom on a bus near Paris, and made lewd remarks about her appearance.
The fine is the first imposed under the legislation aimed at deterring predatory remarks and harassment such as wolf-whistles.
The law, passed in August, allows for on-the-spot fines of up to 750 euros.
