A serious case review is to be conducted into a young offenders centre in Kent that was at the centre of a BBC Panorama investigation.

The undercover investigation at the G4S-run Medway Secure Training Centre in Rochester resulted in allegations of abuse and mistreatment of youngsters.

Several people were charged after the behind-the-scenes footage was aired.

Medway Safeguarding Children Board said its review would look at how agencies linked to the centre worked together.

It said the aim would be to identify where lessons could be learned.

The training centre was being run by G4S at the time of the programme but is now run by the government's National Offender Management Service.
