Re X (Secure Accommodation: Lack of Provision) [2023] EWHC 129 (Fam)

Secure accommodation of children "The primary purpose of this judgment is for the court, once again, to draw public attention to the very substantial deficit that exists nationally in the provision of facilities for the secure accommodation of children. ... Courts are regularly told that, on any given day, the number of those needing a secure placement exceeds the number of available places by 60 or 70."
