A Ministry of Justice official has admitted a young offenders' institution heavily criticised in a new report has "struggled to cope".
Michael Spurr, chief executive of the National Offender Management Service (Noms), the executive agency of the Ministry of Justice that runs prisons in England and Wales, said:
The challenges presented by the young men held at Glen Parva should not be underestimated and on occasions the prison has struggled to cope.
The governor launched an improvement plan prior to this unannounced inspection and progress is being made.
