A woman who was catcalled by a trio of roofers took matters into her own hands to make sure they faced the consequences of their actions.

Courtney Greatrex was walking down a busy road in London when she heard three men in a white Aqua Roofing company van shouting obscenities at her, according to the Daily Mail.

In a Facebook post, Greatrex described her experience and shared pictures of the van and the men inside of it.

"Before 8am this morning I got repeatedly goaded by these three men in their van in slow traffic," the post read. "They followed me down the road ringing a bike bell and whistling at me to look at them and laughing. So I took a picture of their van, told them to leave me alone, and they hid their faces but not before calling me a f*****g w***e. For walking to the tube."

"Don't get me wrong, sexual harassment is alive and well in London and this happens most mornings," Greatrex's post continued. "But today I'm not accepting it. Don't worry boys, wolf whistling from your company car means your boss is about to find out all about it!"

Greatrex said she and her friends and family have contacted Aqua Roofing to express their outrage over how the men behaved.

"Everyone has been really supportive and agrees that their behavior was unacceptable," Greatrex said. "There was no reason for it, even if they thought it was just 'banter'. I spoke to their boss, who dealt with it really well, but the company need to take ownership of the fact that these men were in a car marked with their details."

"He called me back to say that one of the staff members has been sacked and they are properly investigating the other two employees tomorrow," she continued. "The company say they haven't received a complaint like this before, but I might just be the first to stand up for myself and have evidence." 

Other women online shared their support for Greatrex and relayed similar stories, according to LittleThings.

"Well done for reporting them, hopefully they might learn this is no way to treat a young lady, but do take care, change your route if possible, and keep alert," one user wrote. 

"I have done this," another commented. "Had a man in a company vehicle driving crazy cut me off, i honked at him and got the bird. Then I called the number on the vehicle & told them what happened. Can't people just be nice?"
