Police blitz on sex workers.

A CRACKDOWN has been launched by police on sex workers and kerb crawlers in the Kensington area of Liver pool.

The operation was launched after complaints that prostitutes were working openly at all times of the day and night in residential streets around Sheil Road.

Sex workers who come into contact with police during the initiative will be referred to support agencies who can help with drug and alcohol dependency.

Police are also working closely with local residents who are recording registration numbers, descriptions and information relating to kerb crawlers using the Sheil Road area.

Neighbourhood Inspector Dave Charnock said: "Merseyside Police is sending out a clear message to anyone found using the services of prostitutes in the area by actively pursuing prosecutions.

"Letters will also be sent to the home addresses of kerb crawlers with details of an appointment to meet with a representative from Liverpool Anti-Social Behaviour Unit and they will be issued with anti-social behaviour contracts."

Kensington and Fairfield councillor Louise Baldock is supporting the initiative.
