Yeah I suspect it was the Glasgow dominated new national police there, acting the maggot and their attempted 'spectacular' at a perceived vulnerable target which would grab big headlines spectacularly back fired on them!
AFAIK Glasgow police did not tolerate massage parlours openly operating on their patch, whereas Edinburgh had a licensing system run by the council!
I'm not sure if the licensing system is still inplace this boolock acting from Glasgow may have ended it!
Some of the biggest massage parlours, London Street Sauna and Blair Street are still very much in business. I was never in the second but can definitely recommend the first!
LSS doesn't have a website, Blair Street is at - http://www.blairsauna.com/
Ride them on the beaches!
