STOP PRESS - NDNAD solves 0.67% of crimes!

The Home Affairs select committee has been told that, of the nearly 5 million offences reported to the police last year, 33,000 were solved thanks to a direct match with a stored DNA profile, see here.

Britain's national DNA database (NDNAD) with more than 5.5million individuals registered, solves one in every 150 crimes and it's the largest in the world.
