Have you ever been on a date where you've felt unsafe? Or met up with a Tinder match that turned out to be nothing like their profile? Then you need to "Ask for Angela".

A UK council campaign has gone viral with a series of posters that help people in bars and clubs to get out of situations they feel unsafe in.

Implemented by Lincolnshire county council, in England's east, the posters read:

"Hi, I'm Angela, Are you on a date that isn't working out? Do you feel like you're not in a safe situation? Is your Tinder profile not who they said they were on their profile?Does it all feel a bit weird?"

The poster then recommends going to the bar to "Ask for Angela", which will signal to bar staff that you need help getting out of your situation.

Part of the council's "No More" campaign against domestic violence, the initiative is sponsored by the Lincolnshire Rape Crisis Centre and has gained international attention after a local shared an image of the poster on Twitter.

Twitter users reacted by praising the initiative, with some suggesting it should be implemented everywhere.
