Lord Morrow 'disappointed' by lack of prosecutions for paying for sex

No-one has been prosecuted for paying for sex in Northern Ireland despite the fact it has been illegal for more than a year, it has emerged.

The law - the first of its kind in the UK - was introduced last June after a majority of MLAs at Stormont backed it.

The DUP MLA Lord Morrow, who pushed for the new law, said he was "disappointed" at the lack of prosecutions.

However, he has warned the PPS that questions will be asked if there are no prosecutions in the next 12 months.
