Calls for more po­lice or war­dens at night

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

THE Tele spoke to res­i­dents in Ar­broath Road to get their views on pros­ti­tu­tion and asked how they thought it should be dealt with.

Re­tired coun­cil worker El­iz­a­beth Tul­loch, 88 said: “I think it’s ter­ri­ble. I know a gen­tle­man down the road who has phoned the po­lice about it be­fore. It’s a sad world we live in. I think some po­lice pa­trolling would be a good enough solution.”

Mar­garet An­der­son 60, an ad­min of­fi­cer, said: “I watched a woman crawl­ing along the road one night, she was so out of it.

“I hope some­thing can be done about it. My niece plays in the gar­den — es­pe­cially in the sum­mer nights — and she’s seen woman in all sorts of cloth­ing.”

Pam Kalsa, 56, a sup­port worker, said: “I’m not happy about what’s go­ing on. I’ve not ac­tu­ally seen much be­cause I’m not out at that time of night, but I do worry about chil­dren and what they might see.

“I think there should be some war­dens put in place or even po­lice.”

Brent An­der­son, 63, a cus­tody of­fi­cer, said: “I was de­liv­er­ing a l et­ter and a woman got in some­body’s car right in front of me. I called the po­lice and gave them the model and plate num­ber, but noth­ing was done.”
