West Yorkshire Police have alerted other forces about a new on-line app for young people called ‘Cunch-Line Chronicles’ This County Lines app is not surprisingly creating consternation among parents of exploited children. It is a game about running a County Lines (Cunch) operation. Investigations are underway to find any action that can be done to remove it. It appears to have an in-chat facility which would enable grooming/recruitment and so hopefully action can be taken.
Front line staff are encouraged to look out for this app being played in your area and explain the dangers of this game and the cause for concern.
