Forensic Science Regulator Gillian Tully has claimed that the quality of forensic science work in England and Wales is at risk and could threaten the integrity of the criminal justice system, the BBC reported today.
Dr Tully wants statutory powers to enforce standards "as soon as possible", describing a lack of commitment in police forces to meet the required standards, and a significant risk of DNA contamination.
In response, policing minister Brandon Lewis said a review of the internal governance of forensic science is underway.
