Vice squad on Bradford's streets

Look North has been examining the police approach to prostitution on Bradford's streets - two years after Stephen Griffiths, who called himself the Crossbow Cannibal, was jailed for life for the murders of three women.

Sgt Helen Metcalfe of West Yorkshire Police says the underlying problem is one of drug abuse.

Natasha, a prostitute, openly admits she has a drug habit and needs money from street sex work.

Sgt Metcalfe said police have become more active in the way they tackle kerb crawlers by deploying more officers.
