Re: Kerb-crawlers range from lads of 18 to respectable businessm

PROSTITUTES who are plaguing the lives of residents in west Hull could be banned from the streets. Police are drawing up acceptable behaviour contracts for the most persistent offenders, banning them from areas around Hessle Road. If they fail to comply, they will be given antisocial behaviour orders (Asbos), making it a criminal offence for them to be in the area.

It is a change of tactic from officers, who have previously focused on trying to help the women and punished the kerb-crawlers.

Inspector Craig Mattinson, who heads up the Riverside neighbourhood policing team, said: "We used to treat all prostitutes as victims, but it is not as black and white as that. We do need to use enforcement tactics as well. We are still trying to get them to engage with support, but if they don't, we will be looking at acceptable behaviour contracts and then we will step that up to Asbos.

"There have been some really shocking stories, including young children witnessing sexual acts, people having sex on windowsills and in people's gardens and using their gardens as toilets. We agree with the residents that something needs to be done. I have sat at meetings with them and come away in shock at the horror they are living in."

Police say there has been an increase in problems in recent weeks, as lighter nights and warmer weather have drawn more women to the streets. The problems are mainly centred around Constable Street, where women are regularly having sex in an alleyway and a car park. Residents in the street have found used condoms and syringes in their gardens and in the road.

Sex trade crackdown: Hessle Road prostitutes set to get Asbo

Postby admin » 08 Sep 2014, 18:52

POLICE are applying for three prostitutes to be banned from Hessle Road in west Hull. In the past few months Humberside Police have stepped up their bid to tackle the sex trade problem in the area.

Patrols have been increased and more cameras have been installed, particularly around Constable Street, where residents complained sex acts were taking place right outside their homes.

Now, the police are in the process of applying for antisocial behaviour orders (Asbos) against three prostitutes.

Inspector Craig Mattinson, who heads up the Riverside neighbourhood policing team, said: "We had a meeting with residents a few weeks ago and we all agreed things are improving. But it's not perfect and we still have a long way to go. We have applied for Asbos against three prostitutes working in Hessle Road and these are with our legal services department."

Insp Mattinson believes the work carried out has helped move the sex trade away from residential areas. The problems are mainly centred around Constable Street, where people are regularly having sex in an alleyway and a car park. Residents in the street have found used condoms and syringes in their gardens and in the road.

Prostitution-free zone for Hull's Hessle Road is a UK first

Postby admin » 04 Dec 2014, 23:35

A PROSTITUTION-FREE zone has been created in Hull. In a landmark ruling, prostitutes and kerb-crawlers found in the area around Hessle Road will be arrested and forced to appear in court.

Hull City Council has been granted the injunction order under Section 222 of the Local Government Act 1972, banning prostitution in the area surrounding Hessle Road. It is the first time the orders have been used to tackle prostitutes anywhere in the country. Residents living in the area have complained about people having sex in broad daylight – including in their gardens.

The injunction order was granted by Recorder Paul Miller at Hull County Court yesterday and is now in force. It means people caught loitering or soliciting for the purpose of prostitution, or those approaching prostitutes within the zone, will face court action. Those caught having sex, urinating, defecating or exposing themselves will also face action under the orders.

Graham Paddock, the council's neighbourhood nuisance team leader, said the ruling was a great result for the community, which has been blighted by the problems for more than a decade. He said: "The way we have tried to tackle the problem of prostitution up to now has had limited success so hopefully this approach will stamp out the problem.

"This has been such an ongoing problem and we have needed to think outside the box. I believe this is the first time these powers have been used to deal with prostitution." Notices publicising the order will begin being displayed in the area this week.

Prostitutes and kerb crawlers face arrest in an area of Hull they have blighted after council bosses were granted an injunction in a landmark ruling. Anyone caught loitering or soliciting for the purpose of prostitution, or is caught having sex in the area around Hessle Road could end up in court - and face seeing their name published - after the order was granted at Hull County Court.

There have been repeated complaints about women selling sex in broad daylight and from neighbours who have been propositioned on their way to and from work. It provoked an outpouring of comments on social media yesterday, with claims that it was “pointless grandstanding” and a comment that “you might as well try and ban fish & chips.”

But Coun Daren Hale said there had been a “dramatic” drop off in street-based prostitution with people thinking the order was in place before it was.

Police, PCSOs and some council officers are able to challenge anyone they think is breaching the order. If they carry on they can be summonsed for contempt of court - a move which could see their names published.

Coun Hale, who said he had been taken aback by the blatant nature of pimps and prostitutes on the street, said he believed it would act as a greater deterrent for kerbcrawlers who “wouldn’t want their name all over the paper.”

Re: Prostitution-free zone for Hull's Hessle Road is a UK first

Postby admin » 08 Dec 2014, 23:08

Last week, Hull City Council won a landmark ruling to create Britain's first "prostitution-free zone". The new orders mean that any sex workers or curb crawlers caught around the impoverished Hessle Road area – where 70 women are known to work – can be arrested and forced to appear in court. City Councillor Daren Hale said one of the reasons the zone was created was to give "a positive view of Hull", the 2017 UK City of Culture.

Problem is, the ruling isn't guaranteed to change all that much. Sex workers, activists, residents and even Councillor Hale have said the moves will simply create a red light district in another area. And despite pledges of a multi-agency harm reduction approach that will run alongside the injunction, the city's only sex worker outreach charity was "disappointed" local authorities had failed to inform them the new measures had been approved.

Sam (not her real name) was offering sex at the side of Hessle Road late on Friday night. The 23-year-old Hullensian has been a sex worker for two years and, along with two other women I saw that evening, has decided to ignore the new law.

"They've only started bothering [to crack down on the sex trade] since [Hull] got the City of Culture," she told me. "People have been doing it for years and years round here, and they've never done nowt about it. Now the City of Culture's here and that's it, they want to stop it. All [the injunction] will do is move people to a different place; I don't think they'll ever stop it. They've done town, they've done Hessle Road... it'll probably be further out on Anlaby Road next."

A CHARITY says it fears prostitutes may be put in increased danger with the creation of a new exclusion zone.

Following a landmark ruling earlier this month, prostitutes and kerb-crawlers found in the Hessle Road area of west Hull will be arrested and forced to appear in court. Hull City Council has been granted the injunction order under Section 222 of the Local Government Act 1972. It is the first time such an order has been made.

But Lighthouse, which has worked with prostitutes in Hessle Road for almost two decades, says it is disappointed it was not given prior warning.

In a statement, the charity said: "We have been working with women in prostitution for 18 years, and we are aware that women have been working from Hessle Road for a number of years. We recognise the distress and difficulties that this has caused for local residents.

"While we are pleased Hull City Council has taken the matter seriously, we are concerned that if women can no longer work on these streets, they will either be pushed to work off-street in more dangerous situations, move to other streets where the same problems will occur, or they will be requesting help to exit prostitution. We did not have prior warning of the ruling, so we have not been able to ramp up operations to prepare ourselves for any eventuality."

The first order has been served on a sex worker as part of new powers to make the Hessle Road area a prostitution-free zone. In a landmark ruling, prostitutes and kerb crawlers found breaching the order by loitering, soliciting or having sex in the area will face arrest and a court appearance.

Hull City Council was granted the injunction order under Section 222 of the Local Government Act 1972 by County Court in Hull earlier this month. It is the first time the orders have been used to tackle prostitution anywhere in the country.

Residents living in the area have complained about people having sex in broad daylight, including in their gardens.

Inspector Craig Mattinson, of the Riverside Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "We have spoken to residents who feel the issue is improving. We have stepped up patrols in the area but there is no doubt the new orders have played their part."

Copies of the injunction order and ten exclusion maps have been displayed in the area.

A NUMBER of prostitutes, including three sisters, have been ordered out of Hessle Road. Five women have been given antisocial behaviour orders (Asbos) after residents complained of problems associated with sex workers in Hessle Road and the surrounding streets. Sisters Emily Carroll, 34, Katie Carroll, 29, and Victoria Carroll, 30 – the nieces of notorious prostitute Aisha Delaney – have all been issued with orders, as have Katie Van-Eijk, 31, and Michaela Moss, 32. All except Moss have been banned from a large area surrounding Hessle Road between 7pm and 8am.

Residents had complained about prostitutes having sex in their gardens and even on their windowsills, while used condoms and syringes have been found in the streets.

Under the Asbos, the Carroll sisters and Van-Eijk are also banned from acting antisocially, loitering on any street in Hull and approaching vehicles and passers-by. The women's orders will last until October 3, 2016.

Moss is banned from acting antisocially, remaining in or on any residential or business property when she has been asked to leave, and approaching vehicles or passers-by for the purposes of prostitution. Moss' order will last until December 5, 2016.

It is the first time police have used Asbos to tackle the problems associated with prostitution in Hull.

RESIDENTS living in the Hessle Road area of Hull have welcomed police measures to ban five prostitutes from the streets. The Mail revealed on Wednesday how the women had been given antisocial behaviour orders (Asbos) after people complained of problems associated with sex workers in the area.

Sisters Katie Carroll, 29, Victoria Carroll, 30, and Emily Carroll, 34, have all been banned from a large area surrounding Hessle Road, as have Katie Van-Eijk, 31, and Michaela Moss, 32.

Simon Beagrie, who lives in Constable Street, just off Hessle Road, said: "Hopefully, these orders can help get rid of this problem that has plagued the area for years. To be fair to the police, whenever you walk down Hessle Road now, there is nearly always an officer or PCSO on the beat – that is the only way we are going to stop it. Things have been getting a lot better and hopefully these orders will put an end to it."

Residents had complained about prostitutes having sex in their gardens and even on their windowsills. Used condoms and syringes had also been found on the streets.

Anna Jenkins, 37, of Hessle Road, said: "We understand that some of these women have been unlucky in life but it's not fair for us residents to put up with all this going on, on our doorsteps."

However, a charity working with sex workers has criticised Humberside Police for "naming and shaming" the five women. Alex Feis-Bryce, chief executive of National Ugly Mugs, said: "This is the most regressive and potentially harmful enforcement we have seen in the UK for a while. Issuing Asbos is counter-productive and stigmatising and only serves to entrench existing vulnerabilities. Sex workers are a marginalised and often deeply vulnerable group who face stigma on a daily basis and this sort of approach creates a climate of entrenched hostility."

First woman jailed for breaching order against prostitution in Hessle Road area

A WOMAN has been jailed after becoming the first person to breach new orders introduced to tackle the problem of prostitution in west Hull.

Maria Longthorne, 45, was jailed for two weeks after breaching an order preventing her from plying her trade in the Hessle Road area.

Hull City Council was granted the use of powers under Section 222 of the Local Government Act 1972 at Hull County Court to tackle prostitution.

In a landmark ruling, prostitutes and kerb crawlers found breaching the order by loitering, soliciting or having sex face arrest and a court appearance.

A CHARITY that helps Hull's sex workers says it is struggling to contact them after new orders were introduced to stop them plying their trade.

Hull Lighthouse project has been helping prostitutes in the city for a number of years and has always insisted the best approach is to help rather than punish the women.

But earlier this month, Maria Longthorne, 45, was jailed for two weeks after becoming the first person to breach new orders introduced to tackle the problem of prostitution in west Hull.

A spokesman for Hull Lighthouse said: "We share the celebration of local residents, who are now seeing less prostitution in their area, and have every sympathy for the intrusive indignities many of them have suffered.

A "pimp" stabbed a man in the chest after a Hessle Road prostitute stole his money during "sexual contact", a court heard. The victim, who was "probably" Latvian, suffered a wound 3cm deep that was "very close to the heart", Hull Crown Court heard.

Aiden Dinsdale, 23, of Gleneagles Park, east Hull, is on trial and denies wounding with intent, and an alternative charge of unlawful wounding.

The victim spent the night of December 17 last year drinking with friends. They were on their way to buy more alcohol from Asda in Hessle Road, west Hull, in the early hours of the next day when he was injured. His group, a man prosecutors say is Mr Dinsdale, and the prostitute, were captured on CCTV in the area at the time.

Opening the case, Paul Genney, prosecuting, said: "Eventually, [the prostitute] approached this group and offered sexual services. Apparently twenty pounds. [The victim] agreed, and therefore him and [the prostitute] turned off Hessle Road." The man's three friends waited as the pair are seen on CCTV going down Rosamond Street.

Mr Genney told the jury of eight women and four men: "The victim says he handed over twenty pounds. But at some point or other in their sexual contact she stole the rest of his money, another forty-five pounds, and immediately she made off." She was pursued by the victim and an argument broke out involving her and the group.

Mr Genney said after walking past the group, the man said to be Mr Dinsdale, who was carrying an orange plastic bag, walks back carrying a knife. It was not clear on the footage at what point the victim was stabbed, but he at first thought he had been "punched", Mr Genney said, and chased after the man before collapsing in Hessle Road. The prostitute, who was stopped from leaving by the victim's group, used her phone to call police.

A man has told a jury how he was stabbed through the heart after allegedly having his money stolen by a prostitute. The victim, who is originally from Russia and has lived in the UK for six years, was injured after agreeing to go with a prostitute in Hessle Road, west Hull, at about 2am on December 18 last year.

It is alleged he was stabbed by Aiden Dinsdale, 23, who prosecutors say may have been the prostitute's "pimp". Mr Dinsdale, of Gleneagles Park, east Hull, is on trial at Hull Crown Court and denies wounding with intent, and an alternative charge of unlawful wounding.

The victim, who had been walking with three friends on Hessle Road to buy alcohol from Asda, was approached by the prostitute and agreed to pay £20 for sex. "Did she say anything?" asked Paul Genney, prosecuting. The man, who gave evidence through an interpreter, said: "Yes, she offered herself and was showing ... I feel a bit embarrassed."

Trial judge, Recorder Christopher Knox, said: "No need to be embarrassed, let's crack on."

The man said: "She lifted up her skirt and showed herself to us. She was offering her services." They then walked off together down Rosamond Street.

"How much did you give her?" Mr Genney asked. The man said: "At first I gave her twenty pounds, but she took another forty-five out of my pocket." Asked how she had done that, the man said she had taken off his trousers. The man said he then saw a man prosecutors say was Mr Dinsdale, and "it appeared that they were together". He said he asked the man for his money back, but the prostitute denied taking it.
