Children or vulnerable adults, including some from our area are being moved around the country to sell drugs, according to police.

South Yorkshire's force say it's being done by organised crime groups and they are launching a week of action to tackle the problem.

Temporary Detective Chief Inspector Jon Cousins has told us gangs look for youngsters who are emotionally vulnerable with boys between the age of 15 and 16 the most common.
