A town's mayor in Romania is proposing to punish prostitutes by giving them a "damn good spanking."

Dorin Florea, mayor of Targu Mures in Transylvania , wants police to have new powers to take prostitutes in hand - literally.

Mr Florea says he's shocked at the increasing number of prostitutes on the town's streets.

He said spanking on the bottom was no different to floggings that happened in the middle east for far less serious crimes.

He says people did not want to see the girls hanging around scantily dressed on street corners.

Mr Florea says if prostitution is legalised he would still not want to see the prostitutes on the streets and would open a council-sponsored brothel.
