Drive-thru BROTHELS hailed a success after year-long trial in Switzerland

Zurich's drive-thru brothels have been hailed a success by Swiss social services, a year after they first opened.

Authorities admitted that some have complained their earnings have fallen since the new initiative began, and that they are too far from city centre bars and clubs.
