Crowd Evacuation 'When people gather in public spaces such as sports grounds or the Underground, their reaction to emergencies is crucial. Crowd panic is frequently blamed for deaths, but studies of escaping crowds reveal a different picture. As well as emotional and selfish behaviour there is also helping, co-ordination and self-sacrifice, even in life-threatening situations.

Crowd Evacuation Results from studies using a new computer simulation are challenging the assumption that crowds panic in an emergency situation. The Underground Station Evacuation Application works just like a three-dimensional (3D) computer game. By manipulating a person's behaviour in a virtual crowd during an emergency on an underground railway station, factors such as the speed of exit can be recorded.

Murder: Chapel Allerton In 1991, the badly decomposed and partially mummified skeleton of a young person was found wrapped in a carpet and dumped on a construction site at Chapel Allerton, Leeds. It was estimated that the remains had probably been located elsewhere for around one year. The body was clothed in a striped sweater and wore plastic earrings and a wristwatch. Some medium-length brown hair also remained. Examinations by a forensic anthropologist determined that the body was that of a young Caucasian female between the ages of 18-25. The skull did possess a very square jaw, with a prominent underbite. “Visual Forensic Evidence” - Damian Schofield
