There’s been a sharp rise in the number of grooming cases reported in Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire.
The NSPCC’s looked at totals recorded by police forces since 2013 – with Northants numbers rising from just 8 to 33.
In Cambridgeshire the increase was from 7 to 53.
The increase year on year from 2016/17 to 17/18 was also significant in both counties.
The charity wants the Government to do more to target social media – and introduce a mandatory safety code.
