We are taking a wide range of actions to tackle county lines and are working together closely across Government, with the police, the National Crime Agency, local authorities and voluntary sector partners. Most recently, in December we implemented the new Drug Dealing Telecommunications Restriction Orders to enable the police and NCA to close down phone numbers being used for county lines drugs dealing.
