Calls for controlled vice zones
A group representing prostitutes is campaigning for better protection for vice girls after the murder of a prostitute in Ipswich.

Security guard Darren Brown was jailed for life on Monday for the murder of prostitute Cara Martin-Brown, 25.

Ipswich Crown Court heard he kicked her to death because he did not like prostitutes working outside his home.

The English Collective of Prostitutes is calling for the legalisation of the profession.

They say there should be controlled zones where prostitutes can work without fear, and improved protection.

One prostitute who works in Ipswich and calls herself Debbie, has also called for the legalisation of their work.

She told BBC Radio Suffolk she had been working in the area for two years, and wanted better protection.
