Childen locked away: Britain's modern bedlam
A disturbing story by UK journalist Louise Tickle on the distressed and vulnerable children in England who are, ostensibly, locked up and denied their liberty to protect them whereas there aren’t sufficient regulated therapeutic places for the children.
For example, 12-year-old Becky is being held in a psychiatric facility. She is locked in a room and the only people she sees are the staff who bring her food and put it through a hatch.
Becky is safe, but most people responsible for Becky think the environment is totally unsuitable for her.
