100’s of stickers advertising prostitutes spark anger

Postby admin » 15 Apr 2013, 18:16

Stickers advertising prostitutes have been plastered along walls and lampposts, with one resident saying he sees “hundreds” of them on his walk home. One councillor said over the past two weeks he had suddenly received numerous complains from residents about the adverts.

Cllr Ross Hatful, of Valentines ward, said: “It’s not anything which has been discussed before. Residents don’t feel Ilford is a nice place to live.” He said the stickers have appeared along Cranbrook Road, Ilford, on lampposts, walls and in phone boxes. “They use words like escorts and have scantily clad women on them. You cannot fail to know what they are about,” Cllr Hatful added. It may be because police are clamping down on prostitution in Loxford and it’s being pushed elsewhere.”

Varinder Singh, 24, of Henley Road, Ilford, said that over the past two weeks roads around his house had been plastered with the prostitute advertisements. He said: “It makes me angry that someone has gone to the effort of wrecking our environment. I’ve lived here all my life and it’s the first time I’ve seen them.”

Father-of-two threatens council tax protest over Ilford Lane

Postby admin » 17 Apr 2013, 13:40

One man is so outraged at prostitutes loitering outside his house, condoms being left in the street and loud noise late at night he is threatening to not pay council tax. Father-of-two Ediz Mustafa, 37, said it is becoming unbearable to live in his street due to prostitutes, despite his wife regularly calling police.

Mr Mustafa of Ilford Lane, Ilford, said: “We want them off our doorstep. There are prostitutes there every night and no one moves them along.” He said his neighbours are equally frustrated with the prostitutes, with one deciding to sell up and leave the area.

“She says the area’s not good enough. There are other residents thinking of not paying their council tax too,” he added. “I think all the residents shouldn’t pay it.”

Life of an Ilford prostitute: Drugs, murder & kerb crawlers

Postby admin » 30 Apr 2013, 14:21

At 15 years old Sonia was sent to work on the streets as a prostitute by her mum to fund her crack and heroin addiction. She was so terrified that the first time she picked up a punter she burst into tears and he had to take her home.

Having worked in a town where five of her fellow prostitutes were murdered, the 32-year-old continues to work on the streets, sometimes on the same beat as her mum.

She is just one of the tens of girls working in Ilford’s red light district down Ilford Lane and was pulled over by police last week after being spotted getting into a car. “I don’t want to be out here,” she said. “My mum sent me out for drugs money and to pay the rent. It was horrible. It is horrible. I’m now on a script [prescribed methadone] but my mum still sends me out.”

The poor woman. What a tragic life she leads. Her mother has quite a hold on her even at this age. I often drive past this road to get to my other job. You would never think it's a red light district!

To read the reports in the press you'd think there were more girls on Ilford Lane than in Amsterdam

Honestly Admin, if you were to go up that road, you would never believe it! It's rows and rows of beautiful saree boutiques, grocery shops, restaurants, etc.

It's so easy to forget what terrible danger these girls face, day in, day out. I wish I could save them all :cry:

New Road in Chatham used to be the same. I drove along there regularly without seeing any working girls yet the local papers had you believe there were hundreds of them

Is it a case of them exaggerating the truth here? Perhaps the place is transformed at the stroke of midnight. Who knows!

I have a night shift coming up so will be sure to look out for these girls when I pass Ilford lane

“Massive demand” is the main obstacle to clearing prostitutes from the streets of Ilford, according to one police officer. Sgt Lee Wilkinson, who leads the Loxford Safer Neighbourhood Team, routinely leads his officers on night time operations to combat the problem.

Operation Clear Light started about six months ago and targets antisocial behaviour, including street drinking, kerb crawlers and prostitution.

Mr Wilkinson said: “There are girls that are forced into it from a young age. You cannot get rid of prostitution and I don’t think it’s getting any worse. Our trouble is how can you make something go away that there’s a massive demand for?”

Flower beds used by prostitutes in Ilford could be removed

Postby admin » 29 May 2013, 19:48

Flower beds used by prostitutes with their clients could be removed as the council cannot afford to pay for their maintenance. Eight of the raised flower beds, two in Roman Road and two in Fallaize Avenue, both in Ilford, could be removed under the proposals.

During the area committee six meeting, held last week at Uphall Primary School, Uphall Road, Ilford, an officer from the highways department of Redbridge Council said they had fallen into disrepair.

Cllr Filly Maravala, of Loxford ward, said he had also received numerous complaints from residents living in the streets about problems caused by the flower beds. He said: “The beds are well past their sell-by-date and we should do something about it. The residents are seeing prostitutes using the planters and are also leaving tissues, baby wipes and other sexual paraphernalia behind.”

Prostitutes, condoms & kerb crawlers: Special meeting called

Postby admin » 12 Jun 2013, 22:59

Prostitutes lining street corners, used condoms left in alleyways and kerb crawlers were some of the complaints made by Loxford residents at a special meeting on Monday. It was held by police and Redbridge Council to explain what they are doing to try and counter the issue.

Environmental improvements, police enforcement, helping women leave prostitution and informing the community of progress were all suggested as strategies.

But residents at the meeting in Ilford Baptist Church, Ilford Lane, Ilford said too little is being done and their opinions are not being listened to.

Redbridge Council officer Russell Ward said they had installed lighting and gates around Loxford which had “displaced” some of the prostitution activity.

Re: Meeting for Loxford residents concerned about prostitution

Loxford Safer Neighbourhood Team said that since Operation Clearlight was launched in October they have arrested 94 people for prostitution related offences.

They have also achieved a five year anti-social behaviour order for a persistent offender, meaning she will not be allowed to go to the Ilford Lane, Ilford area.

Usually the orders for this type of offences are for two year periods.

The team encourage anyone with information about kerb crawlers, particularly registration details, or any other offences, to email loxford.SNT@met.police.uk
