A house in Kenton which was being used as a brothel by 15 prostitutes has been closed down following an undercover operation by Brent Police.
Plain clothes detectives gathered evidence that the property at 1 Northwick Avenue was being used as a bordello during a series of visits over a three month period.
Officers discovered 15 prostitutes were selling sex services at the address, which was also advertised on the internet and cards placed in telephone boxes.
The evidence was presented to Willesden Magistrates’ Court where the police were granted a closure order forcing the business to shut until December 4.
Chief Inspector for Partnership in Brent, Nick Davies, said: “This is a good example of police working closely with partners in the local authority responding to anti-social behaviour and public concern.
