  • Children as young as seven have been recruited by "county lines" gangs to move drugs around the country.

    Charity The Children's Society said that a council worker it had spoken to said they were working with a seven-year-old victim, whilst a member of police staff confirmed they were working with an eight-year-old.

    In November last year, Sky News revealed that police had identified around 2,000 "lines" which are operations to market drugs from metropolitan areas to more rural locations, often using children as runners.

    Sky's Home Editor Jason Farrell has the full report.

    The police know about the drug gangs and all the pushers and where they sell their stuff.
    My bro works late at night in an area where drug pushers and pimps are everywhere and not a cop car in sight.
    The cops deliberately do nothing about the problem because they regard those areas as shitholes, which they are.
    The logic being it keeps the problem in one area, whereas if they moved in the problem would move to the better areas.

    How can we believe any of these people are real?
    I mean, just why would drug gangs talk to Sky or the BBC?
    Also, if Sky and co find these illegal drug factories, etc, then they are guilty of hiding criminals from the police.
    Can someone arrest that reporter and charge him?
