A 'suspicious death' has been investigated by students from Barking and Dagenham College.

The youngsters became forensic crime scene investigators for the day as a part of a module on their applied science course at the college last Friday.

The students wore protective clothing and masks to carry help carry out their inquiries which involved them having to find clues like the hidden murder weapon, planted as a part of the exercise.

Once they had finished working on the crime scene, the students then wrote a detailed report about all the discoveries they made.
