Bradford 'Brothel' Raid

Three women have been arrested in Bradford on suspicion of Managing and Keeping a Brothel.

Police executed a warrant at a residential address on Greenbank Road in Allerton at around 11am on Wednesday.

It followed information from the local community and saw paraphernalia recovered from the property.

Each of the women aged 55, 47 and 31 are currently on bail pending further enquiries.

Inspector Tom Horner of the North Bradford Neighbourhood Policing Team said:

"Members of the public contacted us about this suspected brothel and we acted on that information to raid the house and make the three arrests.

"This has been another great example of the community working with the police to rid an area of anti-social and criminal activity. It shows that by working together, we can improve on the quality of life for local residents.

"For many years the Police in Bradford have worked closely with partner agencies and local groups to address the root causes of the sex trade, such as drink and drug dependency.

"This latest warrant underlines our commitment to the safety of our residents as well as our efforts in tackling negative role models.

"I would ask for people to continue to help us because, as we have demonstrated here, we will act on any information received from the public and bring offenders to justice.

"It is important that they tell us when illegal activity is taking place so we can respond to their issues and priorities."
