Trafficking police raid Reading 'brothel'

A woman has been arrested on suspicion of running a brothel following a raid by police in Reading.

Officers from the UK Human Trafficking Centre and Thames Valley Police searched the property in Chatham Place on Wednesday.

Magistrates granted a three-month closure order on the premises, meaning it cannot be used, although the owner is allowed to carry out maintenance.

The 47-year-old woman has been bailed until 30 November.
