Seized motor in the UK

anyone any experience of these 06 plate 4.5 v8 things with a seized engine?

vehicle wouldnt start, but would crank over, everything else electrically working.
our boss went out to customers house (with diagnostic kit) to look at it. it would crank over just fine at this point, he said it was massivley over fueling for some reason advised to have his aa/rac recover it....
they turned up to recover it the next day, the recovery guy insisted on trying to make it run saying it was gassed up, he was apparently cranking it over for 20 odd minutes off and on with the jump leads attached from his truck, until it wouldnt crank over anymore.
anyway its been recovered to our place....
weve recharged the battery etc added a booster pack etc, engine still wont turn over at all.
ive stripped the inlet manifold off and removed the starter, that seems to work fine on a bench test.
ive removed all the spark plugs.
the engine wont turn over by hand even with a half inch 2ft cracker bar on the crank center bolt, it wont move at all clockwise or anti clockwise, not even a slight amount.
ive looked down the spark plug holes with our snap-on endoscope camera and can see distinct lines and scrapes on 2 of the bores.

is this siezed cus of bore wash and excessive cranking?

any ideas?
