POLICE have closed down a brothel being run in the Toller area of Bradford.

Following a tip-off from the public, officers attended the address on Saturday and after gaining entry, arrested three women.

After finding evidence the address was being used illegally, the property was “locked down” and the landlord informed. A police spokesman said the women had been handed over to immigration and were now awaiting deportation to their native countries.

Anyone with suspicions of similar activity should contact police on 101.
