I can say woof to your dog and you can’t nick me for it.

‘Insulting’ words crime which made it illegal to call a police horse ‘gay’ is to be changed.

A law which has been used to try to convict a student who said “woof” to a police dog, or called a police horse ”gay” is to be changed.

Home secretary Theresa May said the Government will accept a House of Lords amendment to remove the word ‘insulting’ from Section 5 of the Public Order Act.
