Street prostitutes in Italy ordered to wear high-visibility vests so motorists can see them

Their normal attire consists of high heels and mini-skirts, but prostitutes touting for business on roadsides in Italy have been ordered to start wearing glow-in-the-dark vests so that they can be spotted by passing motorists.

Sex workers who refuse to wear the luminous vests run the risk of being fined up to €500 (£360).

The order has been decreed by authorities in Spino d’Adda, a town just south of Milan, where working girls line up along busy main roads.
