A brothel and a lapdancing club in Co Armagh have been closed down by police.

Police swooped on the prostitution ring at a house on the Markethill Road, Portadown, on Sunday.

Earlier this month officers closed down a lap-dancing club, which was also an illegal drinking den, on the Tandragee Road in the town.

Inspector Philip Shepherd warned: "Local police responding to concerns expressed by the community will take robust action against any other premises operating in this manner."

Police refused to give further details.
