Quotes from the news wire:
Many of the young people coming in are from Black and minority ethnic background and by definition [... ] they will be amongst the poorest in our country, many of them will have experienced trauma in different aspects of their life. And many of them will have been pimped or abused by adults who have put them in this criminal setting.
It's deeply, deeply shocking and concerning to find out that young people in our own country are being treated in this horrendous way, coronavirus is a challenge for the system, but it is not a call for democratic countries like our own to abandon norms we have fought hard for in this country. It's very, very disappointing and worrying that we're treating young people in this way.
Our youth justice system has not been reformed since the early days of Tony Blair in which we made a commitment to reduce the number of young people in the youth justice system and in prison. And we managed to do that, but what we did not reduce are the amount of Black and Minority Ethnic young people in the system. That has grown and grown and grown.
