English boy bullied at school, kicked out from home ends up in jail

Hope someone can help me with this movie. I saw it on TV in the late 90’s. It’s a tragic story of a teenage boy in the UK who is bullied at School, eventually kicked out from home from a non-caring family, moves into a Council flat and is a assigned a crappy job (selling Magazines or newspapers i think). He also might have had a social worker assigned to him. If my memory is correct, the bullies from School visits him and want Money, stealing metal pipes from from his flat. (one of the bullies had a father who crushed his hand With a hammer we’re told.) In the end the boy is sent to jail (i cant remember why), and is trying to hang himself in his cell while other prisoners look on cheering him on.
