Accidents, Rollovers & Recoveries from the Eighties Video 2
PLEASE READ: This is a further collection of Recovery Jobs that I did in
the late eighties. It gives you a chance to see some of the great
characters that were in the industry back in the days before it went all
Health and Safety. Plus of course a number of Policemen so comfortable with
what they were doing, that they allow their sense of humour to show
The Stripper was for one of our HGV drivers who was always playing tricks
on people and his wife knew that if she set him up at home, he would see
right through it, So we did it at work using a real Police Officer the
driver knew, to introduce the lady as his new navigator.
I know some of the technics look appalling now, but we knew what we were
doing and I never 'lost a man on my watch'! If anyone recognises
themselves, please take a moment to say hello.You will find several more
collections like this on my 'U-Tub' Channel.

FATAL SEMI WRECK
The semi in front was stopped at a fairly new light. The semi in the back
