Tackling county lines is a priority for this Government and to date we have rolled out a comprehensive package of communications and awareness raising activity with a range of key sectors, including transport partners.

The Home Office has held discussions with Transport for London (which includes London Overground) and Network Rail regarding county lines activity on the transport network and we are encouraging them to raise awareness of the issue amongst local rail operators and staff.

To date, there has been no direct engagement with Abellio Greater Anglia or Great Northern.
