In the UK, adult prostitution is legal, however many things associated with prostitution are not.
Someone who 'sells' sex should be deemed a victim of crime and exploitation and as such, offered supportive help and guidance to find routes to get out of prostituting themselves.
Crimes associated with prostition are extremely varied such as trafficking, drugs and abuse.
Whilst prostitution can be seen as a nuisance by a community, concerns for such actions should be informed to us to ensure positive action is taken to investigate any potential criminal activity and to ensure those soliciting sex services are offered support and are safe.
More information around prostitution and the legalities of this activity can be viewed on the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) website.
