Drugs gangs targeting vulnerable children in Greater Manchester

Ann Coffey MP warned today that vulnerable children in Greater Manchester are being targeted by violent criminal gangs to transport and sell drugs across the country.

Speaking in a House of Commons adjournment debate on ‘County Lines’, Ms Coffey said that children in children’s homes and Pupil Referral Units were being groomed and used by gangs. She urged anyone who suspected this was happening in their community to report it to Greater Manchester Police.

Ms Coffey, the chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Runaway and Missing Children and Adults, praised the GMP ‘Trapped Campaign’ which aims to raise awareness in communities and schools of the grooming of children to act as drug mules by criminal gangs.
