In this article, written by Yasin Patel and Amy Hazlewood, we look at the areas of drugs, and in particular ‘county lines’ and analyse the drugs problem, the legislation available to tackle the criminality, the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the key aspects of the legislation. We look at the young victims who have been recruited along county lines and what rights, defences and protections, if any, are available to them.
