Dereham Neatherd High School students were tasked with solving a CSI murder mystery in the library every lunchtime during the yearly celebration, which lasted between March 8 and March 17.

Those taking part had to investigate the mysterious death of Miss Terry, a newly appointed library assistant.

Students were able to use a series of clues, witness statements, scientific knowledge and biometric elimination to solve the mystery and expose the murderer.
