British police searching for bodies near a former children's home discovered a field full of shallow graves—only to learn it had been a mock graveyard for a TV show, the Daily Telegraph reports. The infuriated police chief "put his head in his hands and uttered a few choice words" after being told workers for a BBC detective series dug the graves, said a source.
Teams using high-tech equipment will continue searching the building and its grounds. Reports of horrific child abuse at the home over decades have already led investigators to a skull and to four bricked-up rooms police suspect were torture chambers. Some of the 160 victims who have come forward say they knew of children there who vanished, never to be seen again.
