Prison 'didn't look after my son before suicide'

The parents of a man with a history of mental health problems criticised prison authorities over his suicide.

Steven Davison, 21, killed himself in his cell at Glen Parva young offenders' institution in Leicestershire in September 2013.

In September an inquest ruled staff had failed to monitor him properly and were inadequately trained in helping those who were vulnerable.

His mother Lynda Davison speaks to the BBC's Sima Kotecha.
