More than 70 juvenile detainees in Perth have been transferred to Hakea adult prison after a riot at the Banksia Hill Detention Centre overnight.

Corrective Services Commissioner, Ian Johnson, says the detainees armed themselves with makeshift weapons after three climbed onto the roof yesterday evening. "Initially three detainees were not locked in their cells, it was at that time just prior to lockdown," he said. "They then got on the roof, that's then escalated and a number of detainees have obviously joined them and at one stage in the evening we about 60 detainees running amok in the centre." No staff were injured and no detainees were; the exception of some young fellow that got a gash to his leg and got stitched up and he's fine.Mr Johnson says it took 60 police units four hours to get the situation under control.
