Suspected Birmingham brothel shut by magistrates

A suspected brothel has been closed for three months after a police raid discovered stun guns and drugs.

Officers searched Ambassador's Relaxation Suite on Ernest Street, just off Holloway Head, in Birmingham city centre last month.

A 44-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of managing a brothel and possession of firearms and drugs. She was later released on bail.

The building will close until February, magistrates ruled on Wednesday.

It was previously shut in October under a temporary order until the final hearing at Birmingham Magistrates' Court.
