BBC Panorama goes undercover to expose harrowing evidence of children and young people being abused and threatened by custody officers who are supposed to protect them.
Secret filming at a privately run youth prison, paid more than £10m in 2015 by the government to provide high-quality education and to rehabilitate some of the most vulnerable youngsters in the prison system, reveals some officers mistreating their charges and many more tolerating the behaviour or even helping to cover it up.
Four sacked after Panorama investigation into G4S unit
Four team leaders have been sacked after allegations that staff at a Kent young offenders centre assaulted inmates.
Security firm G4S has apologised for the behaviour of staff at the Medway Secure Training Centre in Rochester.
The allegations relate to 10 boys, aged 14 to 17, and involve unnecessary force, foul language and a cover-up.
