It's arguably one of the most famous destinations in the world, but big changes could be coming to Amsterdam's Red Light District.

The Mayor of the city is on a mission to revamp the city with the aim to attract a 'better quality tourist'. At the moment, tourists account for around 70% of the custom in the area.

Under the plan, he has proposed moving the Red Light district, known for being the hub of sex work in the city, to another location. This is something that 93% of sex workers are against and one of those workers joined Dermot and Dave to explain why.

'Brenda' has been a sex worker for seven years and is involved in the Prostitution Information Centre who are leading the campaign to keep the windows of the Red Light District as is as those who work there are happy and safe.
