A CHARITY launched to help women break free from the sex industry today unveiled a new trustee.

Rev Paul Daltry will join the board of the Somebody's Daughter appeal, founded in response to Ipswich's prostitution problem which was brutally highlighted when five sex workers were murdered in late 2006.

Mr Daltry said: “I am delighted to have been asked to join the board. The whole issue around what took place in 2006 is linked to the work I am fairly involved in as chair of the town pastors scheme.

“The issues surrounding the girls and what happens to them is very important to me.
