Record numbers of children in Kent being groomed through Instagram

We've been hearing from the mum of a boy who was murdered by someone he met online, as figures show there's been a 15% rise in child grooming offences reported to Kent Police.

According to the NSPCC there were 140 cases in the county in the year to April, and more youngsters than ever before are being targeted through Instagram.

Also in today's episode, a record 86 migrants have tried to cross the English Channel in a single day, Southeastern have extended their Delay Repay scheme, and tributes are paid to a 15-year-old boy found dead in a field.
