Norfolk/Suffolk:140 Children Held Overnight In Cells
Heart can exclusively reveal the number of children held in custody in Norfolk and Suffolk over the last two years.
In Norfolk over the last two years - 59 under 15 year-old's were held overnight in cells. 87 were held for linger than 12 hours and 3 were held for more than a day.
In Suffolk the figures are slightly higher - 81 children under 15 were held overnight, 105 were held for more than 12 hours and 6 were held for longer than a day.
The figures come after a Freedom of Information Request by Heart.
After the request Chief Inspector Roger Wiltshire spoke to Heart about some of the issues they face when dealing with children who commit crime:
The Howard League for Penal Reform Campaign to reduce the number of children who end up in a police cell. Instead they'd like to see more children dealt with outside of the criminal system where possible.
Andrew Nielson from the charity spoke to Heart Reporter Hannah Griffiths:
Two fairground workers have pleaded not guilty to charges they face over the death of a school girl on a bouncy castle in Essex.
A man charged with the murder of an elderly dog walker in Norfolk has been remanded in custody ahead of a trial next year.
