SCHOOL pupils from four Weston schools turned detective as part of a forensic science project to correctly identify a guilty murder suspect.

The five students, from Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College and Priory, Worle and Wyvern community schools took part in the project at Weston College’s University Campus.

During the six-week project the pupils used evidence to identify suspects, before the winning group of Wyvern’s Erin Shepard and Priory’s Molly Mahur correctly identified the culprit.
