Bus stop brothel: school children have to queue next to seedy vice den

Atlas House on Christchurch Road

A high street brothel is operating by a bus stop used every day by children on their way to school, the Echo can reveal.

The seedy side of Atlas House in Christchurch Road was confirmed by an Echo investigation, highlighting how much is still to be done to clean up the streets of Boscombe.

Nick Lawrence, who owns Nothing New over the road, said Atlas House is so well known locally he has seen school children fooling around knocking the door.

“I would rather it wasn’t there, it isn’t very nice, and it brings nothing to the area as its customers are usually in and out,” he said.

“It doesn’t fit in here anymore, this area is really improving and a place like this seems out of date.

“There was a brothel above my shop when I first moved in a year or so ago, I had blokes knocking asking to see the girls and I told them I had nothing to do with it.”

However, Mr Lawrence, who is part of the Bournemouth Vineyard church which supports on-street prostitutes, added: “On the other hand it is better for the girls to be in there being checked on than on the street.

“There are always going to be brothels somewhere, this just isn’t an ideal place.”

Boscombe East councillor John Wilson said he had not received any complaints about Atlas House.

“Certainly if it is a brothel I want it to be shut down, we don’t want this sort of thing in our area,” he said.

“We are trying to improve the area and to encourage people to shop and take their holidays here.”

Boscombe Police Inspector Chris Weeks said: “We always listen to community concerns if they suggest a brothel is operating in the area, and if it is causing some distress or concern we will investigate and take appropriate action.

“To date that level of concern hasn’t been brought to my attention about Atlas House.”

Dorset Police are focusing on rehabilitation of street walkers and kerb crawlers to curb the area’s unique on-street problem, but brothels known to the police remain in use.

We asked Chief Constable Debbie Simpson if Dorset Police were content to allow brothels if they kept prostitutes off the street.

She said: “Some places, such as the Netherlands, have moved on-street prostitution into the brothels.

“But studies there show that they now have more trouble than they’ve ever had, that drug misuse and the sex trade have increased along with violence.

“What we are trying is a longer term solution.”

  • THE Echo paid two visits to Atlas House, a bare, nondescript shop front with CCTV cameras outside.

On the first visit the door was unlocked by a young Asian woman in a dressing gown who kept herself concealed behind the door.

Listen to the Daily Echo's conversation with the receptionist

Our reporter was led to a bedroom and told that prices were “£20 for half an hour or £30 for an hour”. She implied that for £30 there would be two girls.

When asked what was on offer the woman said “sex, or oral”. She seemed confused when asked if she was able to provide a massage, and suggested our reporter try elsewhere.

The second time the Echo visited we were told all three girls were busy and anything more than a massage would have to be agreed with the girls.

Our reporter was told: “We do massage, £20 for half an hour or £30 for one hour.

“Just massage only.

“Anything else you have to discuss with the girls. I’m just the reception."

Rose Beauty and Body Shop was refused change of use permission to operate as a beauty salon after a police report to councillors stated it offered sexual services.

Chief Constable Debbie Simpson has described Boscombe’s sex industry as a “long-term problem” without “easy off-the-shelf solutions”.

Quite why kids standing at a public bus stop is in any way relevant to this non-story I cannot grasp.

Next we will read that prostitution has been rife on the streets of Boscombe and Springbourne for decades - and children have been known to live in these areas as well.

Mind you it might be a more interesting story if the Echo investigated who some of the 'regular clients' at these establishments are.

Brothels are everywhere. As the law states brothels are premises that are used for prostituion by more than 2 people. There are tons of houses where women sell sex on their own which are not classed as brothels.

I used to live opposite a woman who was very obviously doing this as there were around 2 or 3 men going in daily when her children were at school, being a neighbour in close promimity I couldn't help but notice it. It didn't bother me one bit and the men who used to visit were mostly businessmen in suits with expensive cars - a far cry from the 'dirty old men in raincoats' that we're often led to believe use these services. The woman herself was always beautifully dressed and enjoyed a good lifestyle due to the money she was earning - good for her I say.

If a transaction takes place between two consenting adults behind closed doors then I really can't see the problem.

You say that but if you've got three girls and they all earn £30 an hour (might earn £40 if they do 2 half hour clients) that's £90 an hour. If there's 10 full hours work (I'd imagine working hours are longer in brothels but they wouldn't all have clients all the time probably) that's 10 x £90 = £900. Pubs sometimes take half that amount for being open the same hours and manage to pay their rent, business rates and other overheads out of that. They also probably get tips too. AND that part of Boscombe is probably low rent anyway! The landlord evidently doesn't make a great effort to maintain the property from the picture of the shop front so I'd imagine the rent's quite reasonable. They've got to be doing something right if they've been there for so long!

The truth is that prostitution has existed for centuries. Let's not get precious about how close it'll be to kids when, last time I checked, adults are quite happy to...shall we say 'copulate' when their kids are in the next room. The fact that brothels charge for it is immaterial when it's the act that offends people.

It's about time we accepted prostitution as a part of life and legalised it so that it could be legitimately controlled, taxed, and the girls (or men!) involved can be protected.

Considering nearly every single comment on this story (or should I say non-story) is basically saying 'so what?' I don't think the Echo quite got the 'OMG shock horror!' type of reaction it obviously wanted.

The News of the World used to run similar stories in the 80s but even they stopped due to the fact that such revelations were met with indifference by most of their readers, the shock value disappeared about 30 years ago!

Still, I guess it sold a few more copies. And I expect the place has had to bring in extra staff tonight due to the influx of new business the story has generated. Free advertising - lucky them!

Well firstly, it doesn't cost me a penny to read/comment.

I think if you re-read the comments you'll realise that many if not most find the story to be irresponsible reporting as well as pointless - which is not untypical as I previously said.

Is it too much to expect an established local newspaper to report stories that are newsworthy, well written/researched and relevant or are we to settle for as was mentioned above outdated 'News Of The World type' journalism - this so called 'shock story' was front page news!?!

I know what I'd prefer and it's not a local tabloid. Each to their own I suppose.

Look my lord this is tiresome, but if you have been a reader of this paper for as long as i think you may have you will have noticed that in recent years the standard of reporting in the old echo has diminished somewhat,the reasons for that is debatable and although i do have my opinions on that i will refrain from expressing them as i did receive a yellow card the last time.I must thank you though for allowing me to digress from the boring thread but i also question why someone of your noble bloodline is even getting involved with such unworthy discussions.I bid you farewell.For now

I beg to differ. 'Many if not most' as I said is pretty near the mark though I don't intend to count! Maybe we see things differently. That said I would add that a story that is intended to create shock and distain from it's readers but decends quickly into a mickey-take out of that story kind of reinforces my point I'd suggest.

As a matter of interest, do you think a report about a discreet and anonymous brothel in Boscombe is worthy of front page headlines and billboards outside every newsagency?

yes we do see things different you need to count the comments before stating untrue remarks and as i understand it there has been nothing discreet and anonymous about this brothel it was mentioned a couple of weeks ago on another thread and seems to be common knowledge to most in the area and obviously the Echo cannot find anything to better it as front page news

'Many if not most' is not an untrue remark as you put it. Try having a count up yourself.. And I will say again, the reason there are also so many 'schoolyard' comments is because the story is jumped up nonsense that most people here are NOT really that offended or bothered by - hence it is not taken with the severity that The Echo so intended.

As for you saying it is not discreet or anonymous I really can't see your point - it is clearly anonymous hence our intrepid reporter has deemed it a great idea to highlight and expose the faceless and nameless knocking shop for all to see!

And finally, I didn't ask whether The Echo deemed it the best story they could muster up for front page shock headlines, I asked whether YOU considered it was worthy of being front page above all others?

Most of the debates on here that reach the top slots on The Echo Top Ten are a result of inadequate reporting or trumped up nonsense - hardly an achievement to be proud of for whoever is sat at the top of their little empire..[/p][/quote]As i said you get what you pay for if it aint good enough for you read something else.The only important thing to come out of this article is that two of the people mentioned have given the impression that they were unaware of what is going on but according to a couple of comments thats not the case the rest of the comments are merely school boy humour although that may be an insult to schoolboys[/p][/quote]Well firstly, it doesn't cost me a penny to read/comment. I think if you re-read the comments you'll realise that many if not most find the story to be irresponsible reporting as well as pointless - which is not untypical as I previously said. Is it too much to expect an established local newspaper to report stories that are newsworthy, well written/researched and relevant or are we to settle for as was mentioned above outdated 'News Of The World type' journalism - this so called 'shock story' was front page news!?! I know what I'd prefer and it's not a local tabloid. Each to their own I suppose.[/p][/quote]Look my lord this is tiresome, but if you have been a reader of this paper for as long as i think you may have you will have noticed that in recent years the standard of reporting in the old echo has diminished somewhat,the reasons for that is debatable and although i do have my opinions on that i will refrain from expressing them as i did receive a yellow card the last time.I must thank you though for allowing me to digress from the boring thread but i also question why someone of your noble bloodline is even getting involved with such unworthy discussions.I bid you farewell.For now[/p][/quote]I think you need to re-read the comments sir and i think you will find about 10% are about the bad reporting not most as you suggest, the majority seem to be from a more comical strain probably hoping for discount if they show a copy of a local paper[/p][/quote]I beg to differ. 'Many if not most' as I said is pretty near the mark though I don't intend to count! Maybe we see things differently. That said I would add that a story that is intended to create shock and distain from it's readers but decends quickly into a mickey-take out of that story kind of reinforces my point I'd suggest. As a matter of interest, do you think a report about a discreet and anonymous brothel in Boscombe is worthy of front page headlines and billboards outside every newsagency?[/p][/quote]yes we do see things different you need to count the comments before stating untrue remarks and as i understand it there has been nothing discreet and anonymous about this brothel it was mentioned a couple of weeks ago on another thread and seems to be common knowledge to most in the area and obviously the Echo cannot find anything to better it as front page news[/p][/quote]'Many if not most' is not an untrue remark as you put it. Try having a count up yourself.. And I will say again, the reason there are also so many 'schoolyard' comments is because the story is jumped up nonsense that most people here are NOT really that offended or bothered by - hence it is not taken with the severity that The Echo so intended.

Having once lived in the flat below of a prostitute working from home, I can honestly say that high street or commercial premises are much more suitable than residential areas. The young single mum that lived in the flat above would play her music really loud to drown out the baby's howling which would have been unnecessary if she could have rented a room at a brothel (or whatever they do to 'join' it).

Perhaps regular checks would make people trafficking young girls for enforced prostitution struggle to find enough business to warrant running their despicable trade!

I have to wonder just how clueless you are

Try checking how many of these women are drug addicts.

How do you know how many are 'trafficked/coerced' either, you don't ? Neither do you know what form of coercion may been used either.

As to "we're in the 21st century now, not Victorian England" that is even more ridiculous as prostitution was rife then, most notably child prostitution.

What goes on between consenting adults should be their business, however despite your absurd attempts to portray much of prostitution as somekind of behaviour akin to the Avon lady, all too often it is not "between consenting adults".

But then, as long as there is " a nice car/holidays etc. and enjoyed luxuries " that's all that matters I suppose ....... isn't it ?

I've lived in Boscombe for three years and walked past Atlas House many many times and never found it demeaning. I've got no problem with prostitution and I find the idea that it's demeaning coming within 10 feet a building where it takes place pretty absurd. This isn't the 1960s, women's aren't humiliated by the mere whisper of a sexual phrase or the very idea of people having sex!

Bob49 - I know two women who work as prostitutes and neither of them are drug addicts. I think a lot of the drug addicts walk the street rather than work inside due to the chaotic nature of their addiction and the kind of clientele addicts attract. You're right though we don't know how many are trafficked/coerced but whilst running a brothel is a crime we'll never know because we won't gain access to most of them to be able to establish if they are trafficked/coerced.

No this isn't the 1960's but you must allow that it is not the 'mention of sex' that is 'humiliating' but the type of sex on offer IS humiliating both for the people who live in the area, which is now known by the general public to have brothels there and for the women who have to earn a living from providing 'services' to clients. Whether they are drug takers or trafficked or coerced into providing it by others means, it is grubby and sordid.

What type of sex would that be? Most of the chaps who visit such places just want a bit of female attention, attention their wives are too busy to give them perhaps? Obviously there are more sleazy sexual practices but the majority of the men probably just want to be touched by a nice looking female.

So BournemouthMum, sex that is bought as a commodity from someone who has little choice in the matter and gains nothing but some cash for letting a stranger use them physically 'for a bit of female attention that their wives are too busy to give them' is OK then?! What a tragic comment. I am sure plenty of wives (and husbands) would disagree with that statement. As for 'just wanting to be touched a a nice looking female' that is just downright insulting to both women and men. What a strange and sleezy world you seem to live in.

"..........is OK then? "

But it is. After all as long as there are " a nice car/holidays etc. and enjoyed luxuries " then what else matters ..... (or so it appears ?)

Apart from the appearance that which we are 'reliably informed' requires the person providing the servce to be "a nice looking female ".

As to the question of marital vows then that is back to the female again, who appears to shoulder all blame as she is 'too busy' ... whether that is working to pay the bills. looking after kids or just the daily grind of life as it hits most folk at various times in their lives, also appears to matter little.

So women the advice seems to be stop being busy and if you cannot afford to then take up prostitution (remembering that this option is only open to the 'nice looking' ) - and who knows with that nicer car, better holidays and more luxuries you might even find a husband who is happy with that arrangement.




ps just don't be too busy at your new career or forget to be nice looking either

I'd have no problem with a properly run brothel opening up next door to me. I only live a five minute walk away from Atlas House now, if that.

I know it's may hard for you to believe but some women CHOOSE to be prostitutes. Some are drug users, some are trafficked and some CHOOSE to be prostitutes.

There's nothing wrong with people paying for sex if that's what they want and the girls are treated right. The reasons people choose to pay for sex is irrelevant and it's not humiliating that they make that choice. I know men who've paid for sex in the past because they are disabled and struggle to find a partner - it's very sad that they need to pay someone but who is anyone else to deny them that intimacy if they have money and find a girl willing to sleep with them for it?

If Atlas House has girls that are coerced into prostitution then obviously that's wrong but unless you've been in (I haven't) you don't know if those girls actually choose to be there to earn money.

If you're that concerned about drug users why don't you look at the complete failure of our rehabilitation system to reach and engage with them to help them overcome their addictions instead of identifying prostitution as the problem? And the trafficking of people is terrible but how are they getting into this country - surely part of the problem is border control and/or social services (where the girls would come under their duty of care)?

The problem isn't prostitution it's the failure of other services to help these girls.

Prostitution is the oldest profession. In the olden days men paid women for sex just like they do now.

''I have no problem with a properly run Brothel opening up next door ''
What in your opinion constitutes a 'properly run brothel' you seem to be living in some sort of 'fairy land' and what about your near neighbours, would they be so happy? As for people chosing to become prostitutes, really? What actually fuels that 'choice', do you have statistics that you can quote? I don't think it is really a 'choice' in many cases but a response to a poor self-image/bad childhood/need to feed a habit/desperation that there isn't an alternative to feeding/clothing children/forced into it by pimps etc., Please don't get defensive because people do not agree with you, I doubt very much that you are the font of all knowledge re:prostitution and it is wishy washy ideas about condoning their use, plus the 'failed' rehabs that you mention that have helped pull Boscombe, down into the state it's in now.

Not wishing to disclose too much but I have known more than 1 working girl during my life-time- products of a deprived/abusive childhood; ex-prisoners; drug addicts and those suffering from mental illness.
Have never met a single person whose ambition in life was to become a prostitute.
