G4S child abuse scandal: Wardens dealing with kids ‘must wear body cameras’ — watchdog

A deepening child abuse scandal engulfing G4S has led watchdogs to suggest that its young offenders facility in Kent be scrutinized by an independent commissioner and all wardens dealing with children start wearing bodycams, it has emerged.

Following a BBC Panorama investigation which exposed abuse of young inmates at Medway Secure Training Centre in Kent, the Chief Inspector of Prisons, Nick Hardwick, published recommendations to Justice Secretary Michael Gove, calling for “Increased scrutiny” of the jail.

The Secretary of State should immediately establish a commissioner to provide additional external oversight of the governance of the centre,” the report said.
