Residential 'pop-up brothels' on increase in Swindon

Police say properties in residential areas in the West Country are increasingly being used as "pop-up brothels".

Up to 30 pop-up brothels appear in Swindon each week alone, according to police figures.

Listing websites advertise services in houses with short-term letting arrangements, and many of the women involved are trafficked from Poland and Romania.
