The MPS record closures of illegal brothels on the Crimint+ intelligence system. However, it has not been possible to recover the exact data requested, due to the way in which the system would need to be interrogated and searched. A review of every intelligence report containing relevant words would need to be undertaken to determine if the reports relate specifically to the closure of an illegal brothel, or to other intelligence associated with brothels, such as follow up visits to previously closed brothels.
