A teenager found the corpse hidden in a remote copse as he walked his dog one evening. He called 999 and police and forensic experts rushed to the private wood in Aston End, near Stevenage, Herts. Geoff Searle, 29, was rapped by police chiefs after triggering the dead body drama. He had been filming a scene for a short horror film, Meat After School, for an American competition, when he and his crew decided to take a dinner break. Geoff and his crew hid the dummy torso in bushes for safekeeping and went off to eat. They returned an hour later to find their props had disappeared. Mr Searle, of Aston, said: We couldnt believe they just vanished. Filming was held up as we went to search for them. It was only when my mum asked around in the pub that we realised what had happened. Mr Searle has now recovered his imitation torso from police. LIAM NeeSoN has become a US citizen because of the support shown by Americans following the death of his wife Natasha Richardson. The Northern Ireland-born actor said touching condolence letters sent to him by well-wishers had prompted him to seek citizenship after living in America for 20 years. Neeson, 57, made the revelation during his first interview since the death of the actress in March following a skiing accident in Canada. Appearing on ABCs Good Morning America, Neeson said that the US had been very good to him. He described the couples sons, Michael, 12, and Daniel, 13, as doing good five months on from the tragedy. I am still getting extraordinary con- dolence letters from American people that are deeply touching. That is part of the reason why I recently became an American citizen. America has been very, very good to me. I am still a proud Irishman, of course, but I have become an American citizen and I am very proud of that, said Neeson. The actor made New York his home after marrying Richardson in 1994. Both achieved success in American films and theatre.
