ISO REPORT DUE NEXT MONTH

The state government says a report looking into illegal prostitution in Islington is almost compete.

More than half a million dollars has been spent on cleaning up the suburb since residents first raised concerns in 2009.

Newcastle MP Tim Owen says a report looking at the prevalence of street sex workers is due out next month.

Sexual health group ACON has reportedly helped 35 workers with drug therapy and job re-training.
