A poster created by a teenager highlighting the dangers of drug trafficking is set to be displayed in schools throughout Norfolk.
Megan Wells, a pupil at Wayland Academy in Watton, entered her creation as part of a Norfolk Constabulary initiative with schools to highlight the risks posed by County Lines drug gangs.
The gangs exploit children by using them to carry drugs.
The 13-year-old's winning design shows an exchange of drugs taking place, with a pair of handcuffs around the wrist of one of the participants – accompanied by a stark warning that County Lines drug trafficking can result in physical and mental abuse.
Megan said: 'I wanted to give an example of what was happening, whilst providing information.

'I've been told that the poster is going to be used across all schools. I hope it makes them aware of what County Lines is and the hazards of becoming involved in it.'
Emily Clark, Norfolk Constabulary's youth engagement officer, said: 'Megan interpreted the brief really well and produced a poster that was eye catching, described the issue and gave good advice.'
