A man finds out about his wife’s lover and police try to identify whether an unidentified body found in a fire is the husband or her lover

Adapted from a story called Burn the Evidence by Percy Hoskins, this short mystery crime drama has a number of brief railway shots during a montage sequence of police making enquiries. In one shot, a police car pulls up outside terraced housing and a train is crossing the railway bridge behind. This was filmed in Hardinge Street E1, with the train formed of former LMS (MR) suburban carriages running between Shadwell and Limehouse on the route out of Fenchurch Street. This is followed by a brief glimpse of officers keeping watch outside a mainline railway station, but it is not known where this was filmed.

The only train in the film can be seen crossing the bridge at the top of this shot. This is Hardinge Street, London E1.
This is believed to be the entrance to a railway station, unless anyone knows differently.
