Director of Medway 'G4S abuse' claim centre quits

The director of a young offenders' unit at the centre of allegations staff assaulted teenage boys has quit.

Ralph Marchant is stepping down from Medway Secure Training Centre in Kent after severe criticism of its management.

His decision came after Chief Inspector of Prisons Nick Hardwick urged the government to establish a commissioner to be set up to oversee the unit.
