Gritty scenes of the aftermath of murder, robbery and arson have long been fodder for television and film, but the day to day role of real life crime scene examiners can be even more varied.

In Louth, the Scenes of Crime unit are five trained gardai based at Collon Garda Station, operating on a county wide basis, and are among the busiest in the country.
