Suffolk prostitute murders - five years on. Sophie Barker sings live. The first nightclub chaplain
Presented by Sheila McClennon. In December 2006 the bodies of five murdered sex workers were found in and around Ipswich. The women had all been working as prostitutes and killed by one man, Steve Wright. Five years on, Suffolk County Council has issued a report claiming street prostitution in the town has ended and over eighty women have been helped to turn their lives around. How has the council achieved this and should other cities be copying the Ipswich approach? Superintendent Alan Caton of Suffolk Police, and Dr Belinda Brooks-Gordon, author of 'The Price of Sex', join Sheila to discuss.
