Deadly day out for all the family

Have your say

CHILDREN are invited to put their sleuthing hats on for a really wild treasure hunt.

They have the opportunity to become deadly detectives for the day at a County Durham nature reserve.

The youngsters can solve a wildlife crime with the BBC’s special DSI: Deadly Scene Investigation activity, taking place with Natural England.

Children and their families who go along to the mysterious tangled landscape will be given a deadly detective’s booklet and will be presented with a deadly wildlife crime to try to solve.

Once they have completed the investigation, which can take up to an hour-and-a-half, the detectives will receive a badge, certificate and a code which unlocks special material on the BBC’s Live’n’Deadly website.

The event is free and there is no need to book. Just turn up and join in between 10.30am and 1.30pm on Tuesday and Wednesday next week, at Castle Eden Dene in Peterlee.

Anyone taking part in the activity should wear sturdy footwear and it is not suitable for pushchairs.
