Look closer and think exploitation say Cambridgeshire police

Police are urging the people of Cambridgeshire to look closer in order to spot children and young people who are being exploited by county lines criminals.

Together with The Children’s Society, the force is raising awareness of how to identify victims and report concerns.

County lines is where illegal drugs are transported from one area to another, often across police and local authority borders, usually by children or vulnerable people who are coerced into it by gangs.
