Angela presents at British Academy of Forensic Sciences
Angela was invited by Professor Robert Flanagan (Chairman) of the British Academy of Forensic Sciences to speak on Wednesday 13th May 2015 on the topic of Essential Elements of Gunshot Residue Evidence. The event was held at the very impressive Gordon Museum of Pathology, King’s College London, and was well attended by BAFS members and colleagues. Amongst other topics Angela précised her involvement in reviewing the GSR evidence in the case of the shooting of Jill Dando. This work was commissioned by the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) and on the basis of the review the CCRC referred the conviction of Barry George for the murder to the Appeal Court on the grounds that new evidence called into question the GSR evidence presented at trial and the significance apparently attached to that evidence. Ultimately Barry George had his conviction quashed and was found not guilty following a retrial.
