A MURDER jury heard a police forensic expert describe the care that went into the examination of the Porsche car owned by Vicky Hall murder suspect Adrian Bradshaw.

Jamie White, a police scenes of crime officer told the jury at Norwich Crown Court of the lengths he and colleagues go to to avoid contaminating evidence collected from a crime scene.

Answering questions put to him by Michael Lawson QC he said that white paper overalls were always worn and a different suit was worn at each different crime scene. Along with evidence collected from the crime scenes these 'jumpsuits' were bagged and tagged as exhibits.

Where possible no one forensic officer attended scenes linked to the same crime. He said that sweepings and scrappings were taken from the car as he examined it at the forensic sciences department at Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

Debris, hairs and other tiny particles of evidence were collected from the footwells and pedals on the drivers side as well as on the front passenger side and from the back. Adrian Bradshaw, 27, of Felnor Walk, Felixstowe, denies murdering teenager Vicky Hall, 17 of Faulkeners Way, Trimley St Mary, sometime between September 19 and September 24, 1999.

The trials continues.
