AN MP has added his name to a motion calling for a controversial sex show to be banned if it comes to the UK.

The Girls Gone Wild show is run by an American-based firm, and involves a tour bus travelling around drinking hotspots encouraging intoxicated young girls to strip and perform sex acts in public places.

The firm behind the project – Mantra Films – announced in January that it was heading to the UK and asked website users to vote for towns and cities for the bus to visit.

But a group of MPs – which includes Easington’s Grahame Morris – has tabled a motion to the Home Office asking the Government to step in and ban filming.

It is not yet clear whether the production fim has any plans to bring the controversial bus to the North-East, but four regional MPs have expressed concerns to Home Secretary Teresa May.

Mr Morris is joined by Pat Glass (Durham North West), Ian Mearns (Gateshead) and Mary Glindon (Tyneside North) in opposing the plans.

Mr Mearns said: “I want the Home Office to see if this company can be prevented from coming into the country.

“This is not in the best interests of young people.”
