A NUMBER of sick Internet websites are publishing explicit reviews of local prostitutes and the sordid services they offer. Investigations by the Hartlepool Mailhave uncovered at least two sleazy sites that can easily be accessed by children.
The websites include reviews of a Hartlepool hooker and even print her mobile phone number.
Police have confirmed they run regular checks on the sites, and since the Mailbegan its investigation one of them has been closed down for its offensive content by an internet service provider.
One website, which has put working girls into a performance league table, was set up by someone calling himself Bikerman.
He wrote many of the graphic reviews himself, but others have been written by punters who mail their reports to him.
Bikerman warns that Cleveland Police are cracking down on kerb crawlers, and advises punters to choose home-based massage services.
Most of the reviews are too explicit for publication, but one describes a field report on Suzy of Hartlepool.
The report says: Suzy works from a tidy house just outside Hartlepool, and I have included her as she is superb value for money.
The review then details a series of sex acts carried out on the reviewer for a cost of 40.
A second site carries a review by a separate punter who says Suzy works from a terraced house on a modern estate on the outskirts of Hartlepool. Not easy to find, but safe enough.
He reports that Suzy first gives him a massage before offering the full service , and the sleazy punter describes the Hartlepool girl as a real find in the wilderness .
Other girls from the Middlesbrough and Stockton area are described in detail, but the authors of all the reviews hide behind pseudonyms and anonymous e-mail addresses.
A spokesperson for Cleveland Police said: We are aware of a number of sites we are monitoring them and will continue to monitor them.
