The shocking number of CHILDREN arrested for sex crimes in Derbyshire
Six children aged just 11 are among more than 200 youngsters arrested for sex crimes in Derbyshire.
Experts have blamed the shocking figures on kids being sexualised at an earlier age by exposure to social media and raunchy music videos.
In total, 221 under 18s have been arrested by Derbyshire police for sex offences in the last three years – with the number increasing each year.
The stats were released in a Freedom Of Information request by the Derby Telegraph asking for details of the number of people aged under 18 that have been arrested since 2013.
