The women were then traced back to Sunningdale Avenue and an investigation later revealed the property had been turned into a brothel.
The two women were each given £75 Fixed Penalty Notices and the police will be “taking action in relation to the operation of a brothel”.
Legal action will also taken against the landlord as there property was in disrepair and was a fire hazard, according to the council.
