A swimming pool in Austria has had to put up signs warning male migrants not to grope women or enter their changing room, in an effort to prevent sexual assaults from taking place. The signs have been discovered posted in a swimming pool in Perchtoldsdorf, a town not far from Vienna. One sign shows a picture of a young female in a bikini, with three hands appearing to try and grope her.
