Keighley seeking district that loves red
|Name: Raye||How old am I:||29|
Opponents of an official red-light zone in Leeds are meeting later on Saturday to discuss alternatives. The event has been organised by anti-prostitution groups, which are against the "managed approach". The zone, set up in on an industrial estate in Holbeck, allows sex workers to operate without fear of prosecution.
Local residents have held protests claiming the area is plagued by anti-social behaviour. Leeds City Council has promised an independent review of the zone and recently police introduced extra officers to patrol in the area. Independent councillor Sarah Field said the authority needed to hear the other side of the argument.
A charity that provides safety advice and support for sex workers in Leeds, has said its research had shown the the zone had made sex workers more likely to report crimes against them.
