When the News of the World ran a story claiming a brothel was being run in a flat above Labour Party offices in Kent, naturally the local paper had to follow it up.
The News in Rochester made the story its page three lead, and reporter George Nott excitedly told readers that police were investigating claims of a vice den at 73b Maidstone Road, just above the office where Bob Marshall Andrews MP holds his surgeries.
“Our photographer was yelled at and told to leave while taking pictures for this article,” wrote Nott.
It is puzzling that the News appears so surprised at what is going on in the upstairs flat. A certain local paper in Kent is currently running an advert in its Adult Services section from an enterprise called A Touch of Class. A quick phone call from Axegrinder reveals two girls are available at 73b Maidstone Road where ”specialist services” start at £60.
The name of the local paper running the ad? Why the News, of course.
