Purpose-built sex zone for prostitutes in Zurich

26 August 2013 Last updated at 03:00 BST

The Swiss city of Zurich is introducing new laws on prostitution, under which street soliciting will be forbidden.

Instead prostitutes and their clients will be expected to use a new protected area away from the city centre.

City officials say the measures will keep sex workers safe.
