A hotel in Maidstone has been closed for three months after three people were arrested for prostitution offences. Kent Police successfully applied for a closure order for the Stone Court Hotel in Lower Stone Street in Maidstone - the first of its kind in Kent.
Three people were arrested earlier this month on suspicion of offences relating to controlling and/or facilitating prostitution. Anyone found at the hotel in contravention of the order could be jailed for up to 51 weeks or fined £5,000.
