A veritable army of women now works in the night-time economy of London. The numbers are growing every year – it is estimated that some 725,000 people work at night in London. The figures do not include those who are out socializing or simply enjoying the city.
Recent statistics show that the night-time economy is worth £26 billion per year. The totals are made up of bar or nightclub staff, care workers, cleaners, nurses, police officers and other emergency services, tube staff, all night supermarkets or indeed sex workers and shift workers amongst many others.
