NHS England has said it is working with police to establish the exact needs of a teenage girl currently being held in custody, with the aim of arranging suitable care.
A spokesman added the number of people with mental health issues ending up in police custody was down by a quarter overall.
We are immediately asking the police for proper information about the needs of this 16-year-old girl so the NHS locally can urgently arrange appropriate care for her wherever it is available.
More broadly, it is worth noting that mental health crisis services have been expanding so that the number of people ending up in police cells is in fact down by a quarter - but clearly there is more to do.
