A six-part documentary will follow four Herts Police women detectives as they tackle prolific offenders, those who prey on the elderly and child abusers.

Married to the Job will explore how Det Chief Insp Julie Wheatley and detective inspectors Jo Walker, Kay Lancaster and Lynda Coates balance fighting crime with their personal lives.

The four have 75 years worth of experience with Herts Police between them.

They are filmed at home with their families during the show, to be broadcast on ITV1 at 8.30pm on Thursdays from July 11.

The four talk about the challenge of juggling demanding investigations with their private lives, and the personal impact on them of dealing with victims of crime.
