Bonkers! Outrage over mooted ‘sex bus’ stop-off in Sidmouth
Police vow to put the brakes on brothel-on-wheels as randy road-trip leaves Regency seaside resort residents ‘astonished’
PROSTITUTES aboard a travelling ‘sex bus’ say Sidmouth’s elderly population won’t deter them from making a pit-stop in the town.
Mobile hookers Roxy, 25, and friend Ronnie, 27, say the Regency seaside resort could be in line for a visit from their trick-turning passion wagon as they embark on a randy road-trip across the South West.
Astonished residents this week said ‘no thanks’ to the saucy duo and warned: “There’ll be uproar over this. People will be livid.”
Police have vowed to put the breaks on the brothel-on-wheels if concerns are raised.
The pair offer spanking, threesomes, humiliation and exhibitionism from their ‘service station with a difference’- a white camper van.
They decided to hit the road after they proved a huge hit with punters in Weston Super Mare, and say Sidmouth’s thousands of holidaymakers could make for good business.

Roxy, who has fond memories of trips to Ladram Bay as a child, said:
“The old ones are the worst! So are people in high powered jobs.
“We’ve been to places like Sidmouth and Budleigh. We go wherever people would like us to meet them. We’re heading down that way but haven’t planned the route. “All I can say is we might be moving to your area soon.”
Speaking from a campsite in Burnham-on-Sea, Roxy said: “This is the oldest profession in the world, people should just get over it.
“If prostitution was legalised people wouldn’t need to go freelance.”
Outraged residents who spoke to the Herald were emphatic in saying: “Not in my back yard!”
“Most people here think prostitutes live in books,” said 82-year-old Jane Sutherland-Earl, chairman of Sidmouth in Bloom.
“I’m fairly broad minded and know it happens- but I don’t want it to go on next door to me. The majority of people will be livid- they’ll be up in arms. This town is more than 50 per cent old-age pensioners- everyone will be absolutely furious.”
“I’m astonished,” said town councillor Graham Liverton. “I severely recommend they bypass us and go somewhere they can actually make some money. If prostitutes hit the streets of Sidmouth at night I think they’ll find people are tucked up in bed with their cocoa.”
A police spokesperson said officers will investigate any reported criminal acts, adding: “Anyone found to be soliciting in a public place will be dealt with appropriately.”
