  • Description

    Manchester Police.

    Greater Manchester.

    MS looking into cell, a policeman stands at far end motioning someone in. 2 men come in past camera. CU as they are pulling in a 3rd man; the suspected criminal; who is struggling - it's very dark and confusing - the 2 men wear bowler hats - maybe they are some special detectives.

    MS policeman outside wagon; closing back door. He stands on the back on small step; and the horse-drawn wagon drives away through city street; crowd steps aside as it turns a corner. MS as wagon drives up street; between some buildings towards camera. Pan right as truck turns and stops in front of heavy arched doors of prison.

    Policeman walks to door - a small door opens in the arch and he talks to someone. Then the large double doors are opened; and the truck drives in. MS as inner and outer gates are closed.

    "truck turns and stops in front of heavy arched doors of prison" - the prison is Strangeways. That's the original entrance, on Cheetham Hill.
