CSI: Penrith

A major police incident is being investigated near Penrith - but only for the benefit of forensic science students at the University of Cumbria!

They will be taking part in a realistic two day simulation involving drugs, explosives, firearms and "dead" bodies.

It is the first time such an event has been held at the Newton Rigg campus.

A number of crime scenes have been set up across the campus and in disused barns and fields.

Cumbria Constabulary's dogs section is involved as are a number of special constables.

Mike Tonge, the Head of the Institute for Policing and Criminal Justice, is acting as senior investigating officer.
