Wild animals are thought to have snatched the body of a baby from a mass grave in south London.
The newborn baby's remains had been buried with up to 12 other infants in Battersea New Cemetery.
An investigation was launched after the grave was disturbed and it was realised the boy's body was missing.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the boy's remains were never recovered, despite a search of the area. “It appears the grave was disturbed by wild animals,” he said.
