MISSING vice girl Paula Clennell told how she had to walk the streets because she “needed the money”, just days before going missing.

The 24-year-old has not been seen since Saturday night, and is one of two prostitutes that police admit they have grave concerns for.

In an interview with ITV News last week, Paula said the killings had made her “a bit wary about getting into cars” but she would probably still do it anyway.

She had spotted there were fewer men and less girls around, probably because of the police presence.

“The girls are probably wary about coming out now,” she said.

Miss Clennell admitted that she had “a couple of nasty experiences” including being beaten up once.
