Drug gangs on 'recruitment drive' during lockdown

Drug gangs on 'recruitment drive' during lockdown
BBC:

Drug gangs have been on a "recruitment drive" during lockdown, targeting vulnerable children and increasingly girls, according to a report.

They are being groomed to carry drugs, because they are unknown to police, the National Youth Agency says.

And social media and "unsafe outdoor spaces" are being used to recruit them.

The children's commissioner for England warned with schools and youth clubs closed, thousands of vulnerable young people had "simply gone off the radar".

"Lockdown removed many of the usual ways of identifying children at risk of being exploited by gangs," Anne Longfield added.
