A look around the mine where 9 were killed in a recent explosion.
Wrexham, Clwyd, Wales.
Heroes of the mine. 9 killed in fire-damp explosion. Automatic doors saved other 415 workers underground at the time.
M/S of several carts, strung together and running on tracks, being pulled out of a mine tunnel, two miners stand in one the carts. M/S of several miners and two policemen standing outside a shack at the top of the mine shaft. M/S of miners loading the trunk of a tree onto one of the carts, the carts are sent down the mine shaft - presumably the wood is for repair work to the explosion damaged mine.
High angled L/S of the colliery in a typical Welsh valley, smoke rises from several chimneys. M/S of a miner leading a policeman and two men in trilbies through the colliery. M/S of a group of men, some miners, some more smartly dressed - safety inspectors, perhaps? C/U of railway freight truck with the words - LLAY MAIN - painted on the side.
M/S of a group of miners standing with a policeman and a man in a trilby. M/S of two men wearing gas mask-like contraptions with pipes and wires that wind around their torsos. Various shots of the colliery, including shot of the mine lift shaft.
Amendment November 2011: A visitor to the site has commented that this clip only shows Llay Main Colliery disaster of 1924 in the second half. The first half of the clip contains footage of a different, drift mine.
