Drug running by children in St Ann’s, Nottingham

This is Nottingham quote Allan Breeton, Director of Operations at the Nottingham Crime & Drugs Partnership, who attended a meeting to look at drug dealing by young people:

“There was talk of young children, nine and ten-year-olds, being involved in drug-running, but the meeting did not deal with named children. It was fairly generic.

“The heart of the meeting focused on three questions: What’s the problem? How big is it? What are we going to do about it?

“School representatives and others were asked to see what intelligence they could get and bring it to the next meeting.

“We want to have some evidence and not rely on anecdote.”

    Hi, im curious about the comment you made, Do you still see this going on in the area? Has anything and could anything be done about it? I suppose these kids do it for street cred more than anything else.
