    Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire.

    Good footage of a car scrapyard. C/Us of mangled cars, panning shots of piled up smashed cars and a car on fire. Man breaks up a car using a crowbar then cranes pick up car bodies to transport them to the crusher. "Men have made millions in this business" states the narrator. Various shots of cars being moved around and crushed. "You can't afford to be sentimental over that old jalopy" we are told.
