TWO women have been cautioned for running a brothel following a raid at an address in Ely.

Officers carried out the warrant in St Mary's Street shortly after 5pm yesterday (Thursday) following reports that the house was being used as a brothel.

Two women, aged 50 and 43, have been cautioned for managing a brothel used for prostitution.

Both remain in custody at Parkside Police Station, in Cambridge, in connection with suspected immigration offences.

"Two women were arrested at the address and have since been cautioned for running a brothel.

"Such criminality can have a knock-on negative effect in the community and we will act quickly to tackle any such criminal activity to keep Ely and safe place for people to live and visit."
