The closure of the forensic science archive in England and Wales will cause miscarriages of justice and stop police solving crimes, senior politicians, scientists and lawyers have warned.

The archive has been closed to save money, meaning forces will have to create individual storage systems.

Acpo police chiefs said the “consolidated” archive provided a “safe, secure and efficient facility”.

The Home Office said proper access to forensic records would be maintained.
