We are determined to roll up county lines and protect vulnerable children from this harmful form of exploitation.

Through our £25m county lines programme we have already seen 3,400 people arrested, more than 550 lines closed and more than 770 vulnerable people safeguarded.

We have also increased investment in dedicated one-to-one support for county lines victims and their families.
