Feltham Young Offenders' Institute in west London is set to be replaced under plans to build a new so-called 'super prison' in England.
The new prison would house both a large adult prison and a new youth facility on adjoining sites in west London.
Nick Hardwick, Chief Inspector of Prisons has told ITV News that if he was the parent of a child in Feltham he'd be very worried indeed. He said Feltham was an unacceptably violent place with gang-related fights every day and staff were struggling to cope.
The HM Inspectorate of Prisons found that there was a high level of baton use like truncheons, greater in fact than in any other prison in the country, ever.
Feltham has made a small start by changing the population; only having sentenced boys there - not boys on remand - making the population more stable.
