Youth prison denies report claims

PUBLISHED November 5, 2004

A report by the Prison Reform Trust which claims young people in custody are neglected has been criticised by staff at a Shropshire prison.

The report says almost 75% of young men are re-convicted within two years of release which the Trust says is due to inadequate rehabilitation.
But Stoke Heath Young Offenders Institution has refuted the findings in the report published on Thursday.
