Carer takes boy from mental health unit to brothel

London, Aug 29 (IANS) A carer of a boy undergoing treatment at a mental health unit in Britain allegedly took him to a brothel and let him have sex by paying prostitutes with pocket money.

The 15-year-old boy, a patient at a secure mental health unit, paid the women with his pocket money. His carer was supposed to be helping the boy get used to everyday life outside the unit. But while taking the boy on trips outside, he allegedly pointed out a massage parlour and took him there three times, Daily Mail reported.

During the visits to the parlour, the carer went off shopping. On one occasion, the boy was said to have had sex with a 22-year-old Russian girl. On another, he had sex with a Japanese woman.

The boy’s father, 51, said: “My lad didn’t have a clue about prostitutes or where to find them. He told me his carer showed him the way. He paid for sex using the 20 pounds-a-week pocket money he’d saved up for trips outside.”

“I understand his carer left my son to it after dropping him off at the massage parlour.”

The boy’s father said: “The trips seem to have been encouraged. Afterwards he tried to run away.”

The scandal came to notice after the teenager told his dad about the brothel visits in the Midlands.

According to the boy’s dad, his behaviour and mental well-being have gone downhill since the brothel visits.

The family of the boy, described as a “vulnerable immature adolescent”, are now taking legal action against the National Health Service Trust unit where he was a patient.
