Leeds City Council has announced that more resources will be put into tackling problems in the country's first managed red light area.

Four new dedicated police officers are being assigned to work in the Holbeck Lane area after complaints from residents about problems caused by an influx of sex workers.

The council has promised that there will be an independent review of the scheme next year.
