Children and Young People under eighteen in Custody 04 March 2010
The Chief Inspector of Prisons voices her concerns

The Chief Inspector of Prisons, Dame Anne Owers, recently published her annual report. She acknowledged that despite struggling with an increasing population and decreasing resources, prisons in general have improved over recent years. However, there were still areas of concern, one of which was the situation of children and young people under eighteen in custody.  We hear from Dame Anne Owers about her report; and Frances Done, Chair of the Youth Justice Board, and Deborah Coles, Co-Director of Inquest join Jane to discuss the issues.
