Three East London massage parlours allegedly offered sexual massages to undercover agents in a Tower Hamlets Council sting operation.

Another agent returned to the parlour and was treated by a Russian woman who removed his pants herself and said “we take these off, yes?”, he said. He went on to claim that she offered exactly the same “extras” – which he declined – before again …….
