Residents and people who work in an area of Luton blighted by drugs and prostitution claim the five-year plan to clear the streets has failed. People living in High Town claim the situation has become even worse with sex workers plying their trade at all times of the day. He claimed: "Five years was not enough as a lot of the women involved in the sex trade were vulnerable for many different reasons. For instance look at the support for women who wanted to get out of the sex trade.
Jamal Uddin, a resident in High Town, said safety was a big issue. So their safety is an issue. The council has a policy for everything. Why can't they do something about this.
Another resident Wendy Walker complained about condom wrappers and drug paraphernalia left around. We just want to get the whole area cleared," she said.
Luton High Town anti-prostitution plan not a 'quick fix'. Luton sex worker strategy is working, police say.
Their anger towards the police and council was vented at a meeting on Thursday. Sgt John Killick said the situation was complex with many issues to be tackled. locahions
