The Victim of Cuckooing

BBC Radio Shropshire has been investigating the impact of so-called County Lines drug crime on the county.

Across a week of special reports, we heard from young people drawn into crime by big city gangs, looking to spread their trade into neighbouring rural areas. Vulnerable people have even had their houses taken over in 'cuckooing' crimes, by gang members looking for a base to grow or sell drugs. You can also hear from police, teachers, charity and social workers trying to help those in trouble.
