A Rainham firm invited a nearby MP to unveil a document shredding vehicle last month.

Stephen Metcalfe, who is the MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock, launched the vehicle at Wincanton Records Management.

The machine is housed in a lorry that travels from site to site, shredding documents for companies who want to keep their stationery stationary rather than having it taken off-site.

Mr Metcalfe said the machine “makes it easier and more efficient for clients to see their documents shredded on site, thus ensuring even greater data protection.

“I wish WRM every success for the future and hope that they continue to invest, grow and provide local employment opportunities here in South Essex [sic].”
