Man contacts Trading Standards after prostitute refused to have sex with him

The head of Harrow Council hopes the man will return to the north London borough for 'more wholesome pursuits'.

A man from north London contacted trading Standards to complain when a prostitute refused to have sex with him, it has been reported.

The unnamed man emailed Harrow Council after an eastern European sex worker said she would not have sex with him at a brothel based in the borough.

 “The gentleman seemed very aggrieved. He told us he believed he had been refused and was angry about the fact. He insisted that prostitutes shouldn’t be able to behave like that,” a source from the council told Getwestlondon.

“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”

Susan Hall, Conservative Councillor and leader of Harrow Council, told the website: “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 – like our wonderful open parks, leisure centres and historic churches.”

The brothel is reportedly now being closed.
