A group of Leeds City College students are creating a murder scene to highlight the world of forensic science.

They are producing an art installation in collaboration with Teesside University forensic science students for the forthcoming Deershed music and arts festival.

The theme of the festival is “Up in the Air” and the murder takes place in an aircraft. The set will introduce young people to forensics, collecting and examining evidence such as fingerprints and blood samples to find the killer.

Kevin O’Hare, Curriculum Area Manager for Art & Photography said: “An important part of the Art Enterprise degree at Leeds City College is collaboration.”
