Growing Up Poor: Britain’s Breadline Kids
Three articulate and engaging kids tell their own stories and wryly observe the impact poverty and homelessness is having on their families, including their parents’ mental health.
Following the convictions of serial killer Stephen Port and murderer Gerald Matovu who both used GHB as their weapon, this eye opening documentary follows the eight-month investigation which looks into the use of the drug among gay men.
With the largest ever survey of GHB users, this programme reveals for the first time the human cost of the epidemic scale of abuse, with over a quarter of users being sexually assaulted, almost half having overdosed, thousands of hospital admissions, and a hidden crime spree: rape, murder, and the live streaming of sexual abuse – with evidence of an emerging problem among heterosexuals.
Exploiting a loophole in the law and advertising through social media industrial quantities are being shipped into Britain and costing people their lives.
Reporter, Patrick Strudwick meets those men who have been deliberately overdosed and raped, as well as those who have lost their partners and family members.
