This image was lost some time after publication.

A few, camera-toting spelunkers broke-and-entered into Rover's erstwhile (and hopefully soon-to-be) Longbridge plant. What they captured, through the magic of digicam, is an eerie portrait of what happens when time runs out for an ailing carmaker. A moment's assembly-line work frozen in time. It's chilling when you think of the thousands of workers left without jobs, but the shots are way cool in a fictional, "Day After Tomorrow" sense. [Thanks to Ian for the tip.]
