It follows the discovery of a separate brothel in flats on Mount Wise back in September.

"On 17/01/2019 officers from Newquay Police Station located  a pop-up brothel being run from an address  on Headland Road in Newquay.

"Two sex workers located inside the premises were identified and offered safeguarding advice. They were signposted to various support agencies.

"Due to concerns over Modern Slavery, the police always treat sex workers as potential victims.

"The premises was  closed and returned back to the owners of the holiday let.  No arrests were made.

"Local residents are asked to be vigilant and support Newquay Police in relation to any suspected brothels operating in Newquay.
