A tearaway teen who was twice excluded from school and arrested at 16 was left in tears after he was locked up inside one of America's toughest jails.

Hugh Connell, from the small town of Market Harborough in Leicestershire, broke down and sobbed on his first day inside Florida's Brevard County Jail.

He is one of eight troublesome teenagers locked up for a week inside the prison - which houses murderers and rapists - for a Channel 4 documentary Banged Up: Teens Behind Bars.

Just hours into the experiment, Hugh has broken down in tears, unable to stay composed as officers bark orders at him in a small bare cell.

Lieutenant Robbie Stokes, one of the guards running the experiment shouts: 'What in tarnation are you crying about?'

'I haven't even introduced you to an inmate yet and you're crying.'

I think it's a great idea to have these sort of supervised programmes for kids to get a taste of where they may end up if they dont change their behaviour.

We should have them here, kids who are out of control just may be saved before they go on to kill someone....and as this kid was carrying a machete around with him the possibility was pretty high that if he carried on the way he was going that's exactly what would have happened.
