Luton’s Community Policing team secure three month closure order for Wardown Crescent property

Officers from Bedfordshire Police’s Luton Community Policing team have secured a three month closure order at a property in Wardown Crescent, Luton.

A number of officers searched the property on Sunday, February 10, after receiving reports that it was being used as a brothel.

Two women found at the address were safeguarded and a temporary 24-hour closure notice was issued.

Today (Monday) at a court hearing, a judge granted a three month closure order on the location, and it will now be closed.

Sergeant Barry Smith said: “Our priority was to safeguard any vulnerable people at the location and to close the premises, and I am pleased we have been able to do this.

“It’s important that people report any concerns like this to us, so that we can take appropriate action.
