Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has called for a Royal Commission on juvenile detention.

Shocking footage released of teenagers being stripped naked, assaulted and tear-gassed at the Don Dale centre and the old Berrimah jail which replaced it.

The vision aired on ABC’s Four Corners on Monday night.

Neil Mitchell spoke with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, Mick Gooda.
