A Weston scientist has published a book.
Brian Price has published Crime Writing: How To Write The Science to help crime writers avoid scientific errors in their work.
The book, which is aimed at non-scientists, covers the biology, chemistry and physics behind many aspects of crime, including poisons, explosives, weapons, DNA and some new developments in forensics.
Brian retired from the Environment Agency in 2016 and is a chartered chemist and biologist.
He spent 26 years teaching science and technology for the Open University.
Brian said: "Most crime writers are assiduous in their research but mistakes can creep in.
"Science underpins many aspects of crime and this book will be a valuable resource for authors as well as a fascinating read for crime fans."
