Street prostitution has been virtually eradicated from a town where five women were killed a year ago, a charity says. A prostitution strategy was started in Ipswich, Suffolk, in March after the bodies of five sex workers were found in December 2006.
Kerb crawlers have been targeted by police while support has been given to women to help them beat drug addiction.
Drugs charity the Iceni Project said there were now just "three or four" girls on working the streets.
Project spokesman Brian Tobin said he could now see an end to Ipswich's sex trade.
The bodies of Tania Nicol, 19, Gemma Adams, 25, Anneli Alderton, 24, Paula Clennell, 24, and Annette Nicholls, 29, who had all worked on the town's streets, were found in remote locations around the town.
