Two suspected brothels have been closed down by police in Abbey Wood.

The pair of alleged brothels, one in Wilton Road and another in Florence Road, were closed down by officers from local policing teams from Belvedere, Lesnes Abbey and Thamesmead yesterday (July 13).

A spokesman for the Met Police said five suspected sex workers were spoken to at the premises to make sure they had not been trafficked or exploited.

No offences were disclosed.

The spokesman said: “The females were offered advice around charities which could provide them with support.

“Closure notices were served on the owners of both properties and officers will be revisiting them to ensure the activity has ceased.”
