A prison worker at a young offenders centre in Kent has been sentenced after a BBC Panorama programme uncovered a series of irregularities.

Peter Scott, 29, admitted taking photos and making recordings inside the Medway Secure Training Centre in Rochester.

Police began an investigation after Panorama broadcast behind-the-scenes footage from the centre in January.

Medway magistrates ordered Scott, of Goodwood Crescent, Gravesend, to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.

He was also told to pay £85 costs after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing.
