    Child abuse in British prisons

    The Guardian today reports on disgraceful actions carried out in British prisons:

    Top lawyer Lord Carlile of Berriew said he had been "shocked" by the treatment of under-18s in young offenders institutions, secure training centres and local authority secure children's homes. A child abuse inquiry would normally be triggered if children elsewhere were treated the way they are in custody, he said. The inquiry received evidence that some staff would "bait" children into situations that would lead to them being restrained for the adult's "own gratification".

    Disgusting.

    I heard Lord Carlisle talking about this on Radio4. I have posted on it on my blog.
