Geoff Searle's dummy sparks murder alert

From The Daily Mirror

A horror film-maker sparked a full-scale murder alert after burying a torso in a remote wood.

A shocked teenager found the fake corpse hidden in bushes as he walked his dog.

He called 999 and three police cars plus forensic experts rushed to the copse – only to find the body was a dummy.

Film-maker Geoff Searle, 29, returned from a lunch break to find his corpse had gone. He said: “We couldn’t believe it had just vanished into thin air.

“It was only when my mum asked in the pub that we realised what had happened.”

He was rapped over the knuckles by furious police after triggering the drama while shooting a short horror film, Meat After School in Aston End, near Stevenage, Herts.

The police said: “We had no prior knowledge of the production, which presented a challenge in the initial response.”
