A group of shocked residents uncovered a 'pop-up brothel'

Postby admin » 19 Jul 2016, 21:17

A group of Newquay residents have uncovered a "pop-up brothel" at a holiday home on their street. Eagle-eyed neighbours on Seymour Avenue alerted the authorities to the problem after seeing suspicious-looking men coming and going at all hours from the red-bricked house. Three women were reportedly occupying the property.

One witness, who does not want to be named, said she saw a number of shifty-looking visitors entering the house over the past four days - with some mistakenly knocking on her door. She said: "I've had two blokes knocking on my door - one at four in the morning - and my neighbours have been around on Saturday asking if I've seen anything. "It's been going on for about four days now. It's a holiday let but it's just a normal house so you wouldn't know any different." She added: "The police have been told and they said they're looking into it".

An advert has been posted online to a classified ads site by someone claiming to be "Naughty Luisa." It features a series of indecent photos and states that 27-year-old "Luisa" is based in Newquay and can offer a range of "services" to men for as little as £40.

Earlier this year, authorities warned that sex workers are creating online profiles and posing as real customers on holiday. But they are in fact exchanging sexual acts for money in the landlord's properties without them knowing.

Police have also identified links between the holiday homes being used as pop-up brothels and organised crime gangs from Eastern Europe. In one case, crime gangs reportedly trafficked refugees to use as illegal sex workers - with some underage - and booked hotel rooms across the Lake District. Police said many of the women involved were victims of human trafficking who were forced into prostitution.

A second pop-up brothel has been uncovered in Newquay this summer, much to the concern of police who are calling on the public to help officers keep a track on the temporary sex dens.

In July, worried neighbours on Seymour Avenue alerted the authorities after seeing suspicious-looking men coming and going at all hours from a red-bricked suburban house. Three women were reportedly occupying the premises. In recent days, a second pop-up brothel has been discovered in the Pentire area of Newquay.

Inspector Dave Meredith, Newquay's most senior police officer, said that it was of "considerable concern" that the force was seeing an increase in sex workers in Newquay. "Pop-up brothels are usually holiday lets or apartments that are booked on line by sex workers or persons who manage sex workers," he said. "The owners of the premises are unaware of the activities of the persons making the booking, and generally assume they have come to Newquay for a holiday. The booking is usually for one week, after which the premises is vacated.

"Due to the short period of time the premises is used as a brothel, it is often difficult for the police to establish that sex workers are residing there before they move on."

Inspector Meredith also issued a stark warning to anyone who might think of visiting such an establishment.

He added: "We should be under no illusion that prostitution is a victimless crime. Women who work in these pop up brothels are often subjects of human trafficking and work under duress. Modern slavery is of concern to us all, and includes sex trafficking where women are forced into the commercial sex industry and held against their will by force, fraud or coercion."

Police have uncovered two more pop-up brothels in Newquay in the past week.

Concerned officers are calling on the public to help them keep a track on the temporary sex dens, after two more were found to be operating on Edgcumbe Avenue and Narrowcliff in Newquay. They take the number of sex dens discovered in the town to four in two months.

In July, worried neighbours on Seymour Avenue alerted the authorities after seeing suspicious-looking men coming and going at all hours from a red-bricked suburban house. Three women were reportedly occupying the premises. In early September, another pop-up brothel was discovered in the Pentire area of Newquay.

Inspector Dave Meredith, Newquay's most senior police officer, admits the brothels are difficult for police to track. "The brothel situation is ongoing in Newquay and we are still dealing with them," he said today. "They are difficult to track because the premises the sex workers use are usually holiday lets or apartments, and the booking is usually only for a week before they move on. Due to this short time period, it makes them very difficult to track."

Inspector Meredith says the public can play a key role in helping police to deal with the brothels by reporting any suspicious activity in their street He added that police are treating the women sex workers from a victim centred perspective.

Police in Newquay admit they are growing increasingly concerned by an apparent pop-up brothel epidemic in the town after another temporary sex den was discovered this week. This week another brothel was discovered on Tower Road, taking the total now to five in under three months.

Since July, police have also discovered pop-up brothels in Seymour Avenue, Pentire Crescent, Edgcumbe Avenue and Narrowcliff. It is feared the trend could spread, as sex workers elsewhere follow the tactic. The sex workers operating from these premises are often of eastern European origin, Newquay police say.

Officers targeting the new temporary brothels admit they are particularly concerned about the increase in sex workers operating in Newquay.

Newquay's most senior police officer, Inspector Dave Meredith, said: "Prostitution has a sinister background, and is often linked to modern slavery and people trafficking. Women working as sex workers often do so under duress. There is also concern that organised crime groups are involved in the running of some brothels.

"Pop up brothels are usually holiday lets or apartments that are booked online by sex workers or persons who manage or control sex workers. The owners of the premises are unaware of the activities of the persons making the booking. The booking is usually for one week, after which the premises are vacated.

"Newquay police have obvious concern for the welfare of women operating from brothels in the town. We have a victim based approach to sex workers and make every effort to offer them support and sign post them to support and welfare agencies."

Police in Newquay say the temporary sex den epidemic which first came to light 12 months ago is still an issue in the resort. In July 2016, officers discovered a pop-up brothel on Seymour Avenue after worried neighbours alerted the authorities, having seen suspicious-looking men coming and going at all hours from a red-bricked suburban house. A further 13 sex dens were discovered in several locations in the town between September and January, mainly in holiday lets.

The apartments are booked online by the sex workers without the owner knowing exactly what's going on at the premises. The majority of the sex workers are from Poland and Romania, while the customers using the brothels are mainly local people.

Inspector Dave Meredith, Newquay's most senior police officer, has confirmed that his force discovered a further four pop-up brothels between April and June this year. Officers say women are being trafficked by international gangs, and that they are working hard to crack down on modern slavery and sexual exploitation.

Inspector Meredith admits the brothels are difficult for police to track. "We have had four further pop-brothels between April and June 2017, and I believe this is still an ongoing issue," he said. "They are difficult to track because the premises the sex workers use are usually holiday lets or apartments, and the booking is usually only for a week before they move on. Due to this short time period, it makes it very difficult."

Since the epidemic began officers have had to tell dozens of distraught second-home owners in the resort that their apartments have been used by sex workers for up to an entire week.
