TA 2441 is in a scene depicting an accident in 1950 when the driver tried to change gear going down a steep local hill.
The roller rolled (sorry) away hitting a wall and knocking a tree down.
The driver, there being no drink drive laws in 1950, was charged under the criminal justice act and spent 30 days in jail. He had downed many pints of the local cyder the night before....
Seen being arrested
