Not so here. On 9 March several papers carried a picture of a grim-faced man carrying a box draped in black out of the Gloucester 'House of Death', while a policeman bowed his head sepulchrally. 'Human remains are carried from Cromwell Street,' drooled the captions. Actually, there weren't any human remains in the box at all. The whole thing had been laid on by the police to placate the frustrated snappers who hadn't had anything spooky to photograph for a while. 'We did it and decided whatever story they wanted to print was up to them,' the Gloucester Police told the British Journal of Photography.
