Film Prompts Grooming Reports
Thirty-five children have come forward fearing they have been groomed online, after police released a film about schoolgirl Kayleigh Haywood who was murdered in 2015 by a man she had chatted with on Facebook. The film, called Kayleigh's Love Story, was made available online and was shown to thousands of school pupils in September. Deputy Chief Constable Roger Bannister of Leicestershire Police said the force is “pleased that some good is coming from the awful tragedy,” adding that the film is raising “far greater awareness of the dangers of online grooming."
