Wolverhampton sex workers subject of police crackdown

Police have issued street warnings to seven sex workers in part of Wolverhampton as part of a crackdown on prostitution.


Officers have stepped up patrols in the All Saints and Ettingshall areas in response to the problem.

In January, a total of seven street sex workers have been issued with street warnings for loitering, while four men were caught soliciting. One man is due to appear in court, while three have been referred to a kerb crawler rehabilition scheme.

Ettingshall neighbourhood Sergeant Jon Yeomans said: "Identified street sex workers will be subject to interventions including warnings, cautions, arrest, charge and diversion.

"Persons found soliciting can be arrested, upon charge they will appear at court and potentially receive a disqualification from driving."
