Big increase in grooming cases

Sep 11, 2019

Grooming crimes recorded by police in South West – including here in Yeovil and South Somerset - rose by over a fifth in the past 12 months, according to the NSPCC.

467 offences of sexual communication with a child in the South West were recorded in the year to April 2019, compared with 377 in the previous year. The NSPCC is calling for social media regulation to require platforms to take proactive action to prevent grooming on their sites.
