School releases video of drug gangs warning middle-class students are being blackmailed in county lines

A school has released a chilling video warning that wealthy students are at risk of being blackmailed into dealing drugs in county lines by criminals who trick them into sending intimate or humiliating photos.

The police-backed film, by 7th and 8th graders at Trevelyan Middle School in the affluent town of Windsor, examines how middle-class children can be nurtured and forced into the county lines.

County Lines involves gangs, usually from big cities, who use children as young as nine to traffic drugs through a network of cell phones in smaller towns and rural areas.

It follows former children’s commissioner Anne Longfield’s warnings that a growing number of middle-class children are being nurtured and exploited by drug gangs.

Earlier this year, the Commission on Young Lives found that ruthless dealers are recruiting children in more affluent neighborhoods and coercing them into selling drugs.

This is reflected in the film Notice Me, which follows 12-year-old Elliott as he is nursed by an elderly drug dealer, giving him new trainers and befriending him before exploiting him into the world of County Lines.

Brad Day, the film’s assistant principal and director, who used to work at an inner-city school, said Notice Me aims to change the perception that only children from certain backgrounds can fall within county lines.

He told MailOnline: “Every child is vulnerable. A middle-class or intelligent child is less likely to be found by the police.

“The companies are growing and are highly complex. Word choice is used too often. It’s not a choice at all, it’s psychological manipulation.

“It’s really damaging because these kids have been trapped in gangs for a long time.”

Techniques used to lure children into county lines include capturing humiliating images and videos that can be used to blackmail them if they try to leave.

Other children are drawn into relationships, making them emotionally dependent and enticing them to take intimate photos, which in turn can be used as blackmail.

Mr Day explained that some children are also lured into the county lines through a technique called debt bondage.

It is a staged robbery in which the child or young person believes they owe the perpetrator a debt.

They believe they have to work for free to pay off the debt since they can never repay it.

Children not only starred in the film, but also wrote the script and helped direct, edit and even compose the soundtrack to make it feel more authentic.

They were advised by experts in the field, including County Lines survivor Emily Vaughn, the charity Space, the police and other frontline services.

Most schools in Windsor have shown the film to their students and it is being shared with the wider community and parents.

More than 100 schools have asked to use the film to teach children in their personal, social and health education lessons, and Trevelyan hopes more schools across the country will pick up the video as word spreads.
