Meet Guildford's real-life Charlie's Angel

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

A team of girls in a Surrey commuter town are breaking the mould when it comes to private detectives.

Forget the image of long legged, flick-haired glossy female sleuths portrayed by Farrah Fawcett and friends, in the 1970s US drama series Charlie's Angels.

The Guildford girls are still wrapped up in a murky world, of web paedophiles, corporate espionage, high-stake internet scams and covert surveillance operations.

But 19 year-old Isla McKinnon says that's where the similarities end as the job is just not that glamorous.

She shows BBC Surrey's Danny Pike the tools of her trade.
