Went to see an escort,was stopped by undercover police on the way out. They said i had nothing to worry about as they were'nt interested in prosecuting me,had to make a statement.Will i hear about this again?
The fact that you were asked to make a statement suggests that you could very well hear about this again. However, it sounds like they are investigating the place where you went to, rather than any intention to prosecute you... particularly if they did not arrest you, told you that they werent interested in prosecuting you, and asked you to make a voluntary statement to assist their enquiries. Obviously when making such a statement however, it is important that you dont confess to any criminal activity yourself though as then they might seek to use that against you later. It doesn't sound like they would have enough evidence to charge you with anything however, and given the circumstances, it sounds that If you hear from them again, it may be that they want you to give evidence as a witness.

Thanks for that. They said that it is the place or whoever owns it that they are investigating. They want to get rid of the escort girls out of the town. I apoligised to them for visiting the escort as I thought there was no harm in it.They said I had nothing to be sorry for.
You are very welcome.
Also I dont think it is an offence at present to see an escort behind closed doors. If on the street you can be prosecuted for it?
Soliciting is an offence, but you are right in that what occurs in private with an escort is not an offence unless it would be otherwise be an offence regardless of whether the person was an escort or not ... i.e. conduct which is otherwise lawful with someone else, does not become unlawful simply because the conduct is with an escort.
