It is a sight that people are used to watching on television screens on the Crime Scene Investigation series.

However, for Girls Aloud band member Sarah Harding, it was a case of life imitating art as she called in the professionals to attend her very own crime scene.

The 30-year-old was the victim of a break in as her silver Range Rover was left with a shattered window after crooks had smashed it, in Primrose Hill, London.

A scene of crime officer was sent out to take finger prints as they damage was surveyed and the investigation to catch the thieves got underway.

The officer may have been from a special department that deals with this sort of crime but she didn't have any of the modern gadgets that the television series feature.

There was no high-tech device to sweep across the car or set up for extra clues.

Instead, the female officer simply dusted down the door with aluminium powder and highlighted a number of fingerprints.

The hands on job took the woman inside the front seat of the car as Sarah's assistant stood by holding some paper work.

It is thought that the thieves got away with the singer's satellite navigation system as the mount for the device was found on the floor of the car.

It is also not known if Sarah was at home at the time her beloved vehicle was broken into but the star will likely be distraught.

Harding was often seen running errands around town in her flashy motor as well as taking it for repairs and servicing.

Now of course, the toerags that did this know who's car it is, you have actually compromised her privacy and possibly exposed her to danger. Do your pap's just sit around outside her house all night and day, you must like her so much... no, wait....

Annoying. When our motocross bike got stolen from our garage, they didn't send anyone round to dust for prints??? Is it because she is famous she gets special treatment?

Did they nick her for that illegal tint on the front door windows?

Shame I'm not a zleb! Police considered it a waste of time coming out to look when similar damage was done to my equally expensive car!

The woman, claiming to be part of SOCO by the vest she is wearing, is dressed very inappropriately for the job, very unprofessional.

Amazing, I had my brand new (expensive) car stolen. I didn't even see a police officer, all I got was a crime number by telephone, but I suppose I can't sing................
