Prostitutes' advice after disappearances

PROSTITUTES in Ipswich are today being warned to take extra care by the Suffolk Primary Care Trust after two women disappeared from the town.

PROSTITUTES in Ipswich are today being warned to take extra care by the Suffolk Primary Care Trust after Miss Nicol and Miss Adams disappeared from the town.

They are being urged to follow advice published last year in The Curbside Guide, produced specifically for women prostitutes in the town.

Adrian Kirkby, county sexual health and harm reduction manager, said: “The aim of The Curbside Guide is to give common sense advice about keeping safe when working on the streets, at home, in establishments, or escorting to homes or hotels.

“It is distributed to sex workers by staff working for a number of agencies and has the potential to save lives.”

Mr Kirkby said there were many safety steps that sex workers could take, including telling someone where they are going and what time they expect to return, trusting instinct when they feel uncertain about someone and, if possible, working in twos or threes.
