Officers managed to secure a closure order for a house in Limbury Road in Luton after a temporary notice was placed on Monday 3 July.

Officers had attended the address following reports it was being used as a brothel.

During the visit, three people found in the property were safeguarded and offered appropriate support. A two day closure notice was placed on the location.

PC Matt Taylor said: “It is our priority to protect vulnerable people and we are dedicated to keeping our communities safe. Illegal sex-trade won’t be tolerated in our county and we will continue to crack down on the perpetrators.

“We are happy with the court’s decision to put a long term closure order on the location.

“We would also like to encourage people to come forward to report anti-social behaviour in their neighbourhoods.”
