QUIMPER 2020

Gangs, Murder and Teenage Drug Runners

This powerful film charts how county lines drug dealing leaves victims littered along its trail: from dealers in English cities; to users in Welsh towns, who worry that violent dealers will take over their homes; and a police officer in South Wales stabbed in a drugs raid. But caught in the middle are the teenagers dragged into this dangerous world. Wyre Davies speaks to young men to discover what makes them take terrible risks by selling drugs miles away in Wales. The online news story had 1.1m views as we revealed the scale of the problem for the first time.
