Indeed. What I find so remarkable is how this can happen in the UK. It's such a compact place and it often seems to me that there is not a square foot of it where humans do not tread frequently. And yet it would seem that even in fairly built up places there are locations where people hardly ever go.
In July 2015 Police failed to respond to a report of a motorway (M9) crash near Stirling. Lamara Bell lay undiscovered while seriously injured next to her dead boyfriend in their car for three days - she died in hospital four days later. (Location of crash below).
But I'm sure there was another crash more local to me (cannot find it yet) where the Police went looking for a reported car in a hedge/gulley. They saw a car on its roof but it was pretty inaccessible so they didn't check inside until a few days later when the tow truck was available. Two occupants, both dead, no idea how long they had been dead.
