The Youth Custody Service (YCS) does not hold central figures which break down whether children under their care were born in England. Any child sentenced in England or Wales would be held in an English or Welsh establishment.

The criminal justice system of Scotland is devolved to the Scottish Government and the Ministry of Justice does not hold any information about children born in England who are subsequently held in the Scottish secure estate.
