PUBLISHED May 28, 2004

Detectives are investigating claims that prison officers at a young offenders' institute organised bets on fights between black and white inmates, it emerged last night.

Officers at Feltham young offenders' institute in west London are said to have put white youths and black youths in the same cells and bet on how long it would be before they attacked each other.
