Collecting physical evidence

As well as hearing witness statements, facts may be proved in court by presenting ‘documentary’ evidence (for example photographs, log books, recordings and data) and ‘real’ evidence, for example, items of equipment, hazardous surfaces or containers. In these pages, we tell you what you might consider as evidence and how to prepare it for use in court.
