Crimestoppers has issued an appeal for information on pop-up brothels operating across South Yorkshire.
The charity wants information to pass on to South Yorkshire Police and neighbouring forces across Yorkshire and Humberside in a bid to stop women from being forced to work as sex slaves against their will.
Crimestoppers said the brothels tend to be run for a short time from newly-acquired properties, often privately rented flats or houses.
