    Putting county lines drug gangs out of business

    Putting county lines drug gangs out of business

    One of my missions as policing minister is to put an end to county lines - the horrific crime in which gangs use children to transport drugs. Whilst our police are doing an excellent job in going after the criminals (we've seen more than 7,400 arrests since 2019), I am equally proud of the 4,000-odd people — mainly children — that have been rescued from exploitation. I'm joined in this episode by Detective Superintendent Gareth Williams from the BTP County Lines Taskforce and James Simmonds-Read who manages the exploitation prevention programme at the Children’s Society.

    From the Andover Advertiser newsroom...

    Back in February just before the Covid pandemic hit, I had visited the newsroom of an Andover institution - the great Andover Advertiser. Did you know the paper is over 100 years old, they have a small and exceptionally hard working team, and some 57,000 people are glued to it every week! I caught up with Editor Katie and Reporter Ryan and we discussed how the paper has changed over the years, some of their most popular stories and more!
