A Story of Scotland Yard with the main actors being CID and uniformed police from the London Metropolitan Police.
'The film tells the story of the patient tracing, and final capture of motor thieves. The methods used by Scotland Yard are shown in some detail.'
(Films of Britain - British Council Film Department Catalogue - 1946)

The London North Circular Road location for the robbery appears to be the well-known Ace Cafe in its wartime temporary premises.

That light coloured tourer looks like a Ford 7W Ten, only 1,639 made. /vehicle_308699-Ford-Ten-Tourer-7W-1937.html

The only one I can ever recall seeing on the road belonged to the monks at Hawkesyard Priory, Jesuits on tour!

The dark saloon across the road in thumb 2 looks like a Triumph Gloria, and two pictures have the back of an Austin Ten Cambridge, don't think it's big enough to be an Ascot.

The train is being pulled by a "Royal Scot" class locomotive of the London Midland and Scottish Railway Company.

Some of the thumbs must be worth an entry , truck wise thumb 5 the civilian spec Bedford OXC is fairly rare and so is the Crossley Q with Queen Mary trailer.

JCB, I have confirmed the identification of the two Crossleys seen from the rear. The screen captures are reasonably sharp. However some of the others are more blurred or out of focus. I will review a few of the others I disregarded initially and add as necessary, later on.

I will work on listing a few other background vehicles and then if they are of little of no interest I can delete them back to the comments.
