Gants Hill ‘brothel’ applies for massage licence

A sauna which has applied for a special licence to give body massages is being used as a “suspected brothel”, according to police.

The application for a special treatment licence by Gants Hill Sauna, of Woodford Avenue, Gants Hill, will go before Redbridge Council’s licensing sub-committee on Tuesday.

But both Redbridge Police and the council’s licensing authority have recommended the licence is not granted due to “numerous intelligence to suggest that the premises is being used as a suspected brothel”.

Council papers reveal applicant Terence King, of Westbourne Road, Brentwood, has listed eight members of staff that will be registered, and one manager. Mr King provided recently passed certificates of the staff’s level three diplomas in body massage.

But a police report submitted to the sub-committee said officers had attended the venue “many times” in the past decade.

Police visits on September 7, June 18 and 1, and May 19 this year found it was operating as a brothel.

On June 18 the report states officers discovered “the rooms contained baby oil, powder, rolls of kitchen towels and condoms”.

It adds: “Basic internet search on Gants Hill Sauna suggests that the venue has a reputation for being of an erotic and sexual nature.”

In April 2011 a contemporary crime report, submitted as police evidence, states two witnesses had “been into Gants Hill Sauna for some ‘fun with the girls’”.

The pair were then knifed and slashed by the “muscle” at the venue for arguing about the length of time with a female.

The licencing report reveals that “sexual services for men” and “‘new girls daily’” are advertised within the sauna.

It reads: “It is evident that the premises are known anecdotally and evidentially as providing women for sexual services for men.”

A neighbour, who gave a statement for the police report, said: “A couple of times per month I get strange men knocking on my front door in very early hours in the morning asking ‘for business’ and ‘are there any girls available?’”

The resident said he once found “a lot of condoms” at the front of the property which his children could see.

Gants Hill Sauna have been contacted for comment.

Gants Hill Sauna, of Woodford Avenue, Gants Hill was refused the licence, required to give massages and hold a sauna. as there was “a likelihood of nuisance being caused”. Redbridge Council only revealed the decision of the meeting, held on November 3, yesterday.

The hearing was held in private as requested by the Metropolitan Police, because they believed public disclosures may have affected possible future prosecutions.

A council spokeswoman explained the decision. “The reasons for refusal included a likelihood of nuisance being caused by reason of the conduct, management or situation of the premises.” She added: “The persons concerned or intended to be concerned in the conduct or management or the premises used for special treatment could be reasonably regarded as not being fit and proper persons to hold such a licence.”

A police report provided to the sub-committee stated there is “numerous intelligence to suggest that the premises is being used as a suspected brothel”. Officers visited the property four times between May and September, and on each occasion they found the sauna was being used as a brothel.

A neighbour gave evidence to the police report, saying: “A couple of times per month I get strange men knocking on my front door in very early hours in the morning asking ‘for business’ and ‘are there any girls available?’”

A sauna, which was previously used as a “brothel” according to police, has been denied a massage licence by Redbridge Council. Magic Touch His and Hers Sauna, in Woodford Avenue, Gants Hill had its application turned down at the council’s licensing sub-committee on Tuesday.

The business required the accreditation to perform sauna, body massage and Swedish massage, but it was denied based on extensive police reports alleging it had been previously used as a brothel.

Pc Alan Felix wrote to the council, asking it to refuse the licence as “the premises has previous history linked with the sex industry”. The business operated “unchecked” under the name Gants Hill Sauna for many years, but was closed in 2015 for not holding the correct licence.

At the time the police stated there was “numerous intelligence to suggest that the premises is being used as a suspected brothel”.

Pc Felix said that Redbridge Police were objecting to the venue reopening due to it causing nuisance to residents and businesses, and because the applicant was allegedly “manageress” when it was operating illegally. The police report lists numerous crimes being reported at the sauna over the past six years, including allegations of robberies and of men receiving sex.
