THE Yank crime se­ries CSI has hurled the un­sung he­roes of the po­lice foren­sic world into the lime­light – mak­ing stars of the back­room boys and girls who dust for dabs and col­lect stray hairs.

The hugely-pop­u­lar show, star­ring the likes of David Caruso and Gary Sinise, is set in glam­orous lo­ca­tions such as Las Ve­gas, Mi­ami and the Big Ap­ple.

But Bri­tain has its own CSI teams and they need a place to learn their craft... so wel­come to CSI BOURNEMOUTH!

The sleepy Dorset town’s univer­sity has con­verted a de­tached house into a state-of-the-art Crime Scene Train­ing Cen­tre.

Rooms in the house-of-hor­rors have been turned into sets of life­like crime scenes, in­clud­ing the af­ter­math of a mur­der, a rape, a drugs den and even a bank rob­bery.

Among the props used for the sets are dummy bod­ies, and for fans of gore, there’s claret EV­ERY­WHERE!

One scene fea­tures the body of young man cov­ered in fake blood and with a knife pro­trud­ing out of his chest ly­ing in a be­d­room that’s been trashed, sup­pos­edly af­ter a bur­glary gone wrong.
