Duration: 29 minutes

Panorama investigates claims that unsuitable and dangerous convicts are being sent to open prisons to help solve the overcrowding crisis. Reporter Ross McWilliam asks why a teenager who killed a man was sent to an open jail from which he escaped just 18 months into a ten year sentence and tracks down a drug trafficker on home leave who walked out and returned to Holland.
