Humberside Police say their campaign to target kerb crawling in one red light district in our region has been a major success, leading to a fall in the activity and the prostitutes who work on the streets there.
The police say they've reduced the number of street workers in the Hessle Road area of Hull by introducing undercover and uniformed patrols.
They say the scheme is working, with the number of complaints from residents falling. But support agencies say more must be done to help the women working there so that they don't simply move elsewhere. James Webster went out on patrol last night.
