Rejected man reports prostitute to London district council

Comment on this story

A scorned customer left embarrassed after a prostitute refused to have sex with him has complained to trading standards about her brothel.

Harrow Council has admitted it was shocked when they were asked by the client to punish the sex worker and her employer because of his “wasted trip”.

The unnamed man told a trading standards officer that he had travelled some distance from a neighbouring London borough to pay for sex and prostitutes should not act like that.

“The gentleman seemed very aggrieved. He told us he believed he had been refused and was angry about the fact,” a council source said.

“He insisted that prostitutes should not be able to behave like that. The man said he had travelled from a neighbouring borough in north London, so was obviously a bit upset by his wasted trip. He filled in the form pretty seriously and gave us his contact details.”

Although the complainant was left unsatisfied by the council’s response, the brothel has since been shut down.

Harrow Council leader Susan Hall said: “Prostitution may be the oldest profession in the world, but a complaint of this sort is a new one on us. The trading standards manual doesn’t really cover it. I would like the gentleman involved to visit Harrow again, but perhaps this time he could enjoy some of our more wholesome pursuits.” – Daily Mail
