The dark side of the industry. Unfortunately the press and politicians take reports like this to be representative of the whole industry.

I've seen various reports that indicate about 20% of sex workers are male but give no grounds for statement. This seems to support that percentage

Perhaps the North/South divide is a factor here? I'm informed that £20 is the norm in SE, though prices may dip as the evening wears on. Asking price tends to be £30 daytime/early evening, then settles down.

35 men arrested kerb-crawling on teeside streets

Kerb crawling crackdown sees 35 men arrested

A CLAMPDOWN on kerb crawlers picking up prostitutes on the streets of Teesside has seen 35 men arrested.

The operation, which took place over 11 nights during a four week period in February and March, has so far resulted in eight being reported for summons, twenty being cautioned with the condition that they take part in a one-day ‘Ur Choice’ course ran by Barnardo’s and others remain on bail pending further enquiries. Five have since been released without charge.

Sergeant Paul Higgins, from Cleveland Police Licensing Support Unit, said: “We carried out this operation as a result of concerns raised by local residents in the Parkfield area of Stockton and the Gresham area of Middlesbrough.

“We work closely with local agencies such as A Way Out and Barnardo’s to support these vulnerable women who feel that they have no other way to turn. There are services that are available to the women and we would encourage them to make contact with those services.

“Some of those who were arrested during the operation had already received convictions for kerb crawling and one man had even been convicted of violence against women. This highlights some of the danger that these women are facing.

“Our operation sends a strong message – do not travel to Cleveland to solicit sex and not expect to be caught.”

Stuart Higgins, from Barnardo’s SECOS, said: “Instead of focussing on the women involved in prostitution, Cleveland Police and Barnardo’s SECOS are addressing the other side of the equation – the men who solicit for sex on the streets. We do this through the ‘UR Choice’ programme which aims to educate men about the reality of sex workers’ lives and the consequences of their actions.

“The programme is offered to first time offenders with no previous serious convictions. It is a full seven-hour day and is delivered on a pass or fail basis with Barnardo’s SECOS project workers. We work by promoting understanding and empathy and showing how the behaviour of these men perpetuates a cycle of abuse.

“Historically, kerb crawlers within Teesside would have been arrested, prosecuted and ‘named and shamed’. Unfortunately this has a massive effect on the men’s children and families, who have done nothing wrong.

“So far 90 men have attended the course and to date we have had only one re-offender.”

Chief Executive Officer, Jane Harmer, from A Way Out, which is a charity that works with vulnerable young women.

She said: "We engage with and supports highly vulnerable women, young people and families – many ‘trapped’ by substance misuse, sexual exploitation and homelessness – in order to improve health, wellbeing and safety through the provision of early intervention, prevention, recovery and crisis services.”

Teesside RLD

Postby admin » 03 Dec 2016, 20:03

A Gazette investigation has revealed the residential street firmly at the heart of Teesside’s vice industry. For years, the region’s seedy red-light zones were found in a handful of Middlesbrough streets, but Stockton’s Yarm Road can now claim to the dubious accolade of Teesside’s prostitution hotspot.

But Teesside’s sex workers are now only prosecuted as a “last resort”, after it emerged arrests in red-light districts have tumbled. And Cleveland Police says it’s “closely monitoring” a pioneering project in Leeds which has seen prostitution effectively legalised in one area.

Exclusive data shows that to date in 2016, there have been 16 vice arrests, a figure that’s down by more than two thirds since 2012. And our investigation shows police are now almost exclusively targeting those buying - rather than selling - sex on our streets.

“Sex workers are only prosecuted as a last resort,” said a force spokeswoman. “Cleveland Police policy is, and always has been, to tackle the demand caused by people coming into the area to solicit sex and to seek routes out with partner agencies for those involved in selling it.”

Figures released under Freedom of Information laws appear to show Cleveland Police’s primary vice focus is Yarm Road. Locals say that as soon as darkness falls, girls gather on a street corner near a nursery and sell sex.

Neighbours say they’ve caught girls in their gardens having sex with customers. Another claimed to have found one playing her trade in his shed. “I complained to the police and council about two months ago, but they don’t want to know anything about it,” said a neighbour, who declined to give his name, “It’s shocking around here - I’ve even seen the girls go up to kids before.”

Prostitutes have been spotted taking customers “in the bushes” near the suburban street that has become Teesside’s main vice hotspot. Disgusted Yarm Road residents claim used condoms have also been found scattered near the bushes on a popular dog walking field just off Yarm Road.

The Gazette revealed the leafy street has become plagued by prostitutes in recent years , with vice workers approaching customers near a kid’s nursery.

Locals say girls sell sex in the area every almost every night, while there have been more vice arrests there in recent years than any other street on Teesside. However the revelations have seemingly done little to halt trade - with one local claiming they watched a shocking rendezvous unfold.

“It was a youngish girl taking an older man into the bushes to the right of the entrance to Riggy’s field at 2.30pm on New Year’s Day,” said the local, who asked not to be named. “This has been going on for a while, and there are regularly used condoms around the entrance of the field. It made me feel uncomfortable.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen it but my partner has seen the same sort of thing one Sunday afternoon a couple of months ago.” The onlooker said they were too shocked to report the incident to police.
