A video has been launched to help police officers spot early signs of child grooming by gangs.

The move follows a report by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) on so-called "street grooming".

Chief executive of CEOP Peter Davies said the video tracks an EastEnders storyline where actress Shona McGarty plays a victim of sexual grooming.
