The manager of a pioneering NHS service supporting those in the sex industry has resigned in protest at Hackney Council and the police.
Georgina Perry runs Open Doors, which provides help to excluded groups in east London. But she claims she's been forced to leave as authorities have changed their policy and are prosecuting more sex workers.
Hackney Council responded with this statement: "Enforcement action against sex workers is only ever taken as a last resort if there are cases of anti-social behaviour that are having an impact on local residents. There has been only two cases of enforcement action being taken as a result of a breach of a dispersal order. The vast majority of police action is taken against kerb crawlers, not sex workers."
