Pilot scheme to protect sex workers from abusive clients

In the last 20 years more than 130 prostitutes have been murdered in Britain, while many more have been attacked.

Now a pilot scheme has been launched across the UK, that enables police and sex workers to share information about dangerous and abusive clients.

It is hoped the scheme will help to protect those working in the sex industry and also stop further crimes.
