I was recently interviewed by the BBCs Inside Out North West.
They conducted an investigation into county lines operations focusing on the shocking levels of violence and exploitation of children by criminal gangs.
In the clip below, I spoke about why we need to reassess how we view children who are criminally exploited by gangs. As well as myself, they spoke with Merseyside Police, a former gang member who groomed children to sell drugs and a mother whose son was exploited by gangs.
