Cops in the northern Turkish province of Trabzon made the shocking discovery when they were investigating reports of an alleged prostitution service at a hotel.

While conducting a search of the hotel, officers found a hole behind a radiator in one of the rooms - upon closer inspection they found this hole led to a secret compartment where the prostitutes could hide out in case of raids.

They also arrested the hotel's owners, who have only been identified by their initials F.B. and H.I.

Proceedings have been launched against the three women for prostitution, while the hotel owners are accused of providing prostitution services on their premises.

Earlier this year, police in the UK came across people 'hiding in cupboards' at a pub so they could still have a pint while they were supposed to be closed due to coronavirus restrictions.

Cops in South Yorkshire were tipped off that boozer The Pitsmoor Hotel was still open despite there being a nationwide ban on pubs opening at the time.

When police entered the pub, they found a group of people sat inside - including some who had attempted to hide away in cupboards to avoid capture.

South Yorkshire Police liquor licensing manager John O'Malley said in a statement: "Officers attended the premises and found a number of people hiding in cupboards. The pub was clearly still open for business.

"What makes this more significant, is that the license holder has already been served a prohibition notice under the legislation for another premise.

"Licences for both venues are now under review by ourselves and Sheffield City Council, so there could be long-term implications for these businesses."
