Suspected St Helens brothel closed in raid

A suspected brothel has been closed down after police raided an industrial estate in St Helens, Merseyside.

Officers seized large quantities of cash and drugs from a unit in Jackson Street, near the town centre, earlier.

A 52 year-old woman and a man, 57, from Ashton-in-Makerfield have been arrested and are currently in custody.

Ch Insp Keith McLachlan said the inquiry was centred around those who allegedly managed the property and not the women who may have worked there.
