Details: This interesting photo taken at Acton Works on 12th January 2012 shows three different but related emergency response vehicles. On the left is KE05JLV, one of a pair of Iveco Daily trucks used by the British Transport Police since 2005. These have L prefixed fleetnumbers, suggesting they were supplied by Tube Lines, and they do appear in the CDS brochure published in 2009. They also seem to make regular visits to Acton Works, although their base/s and exact role are not known. The configuration of the bodywork, with roller shutters covering pull out shelves and boards, is very similar to that later used on the LUL Emergency Response Unit (ERU) vehicles. Two of the latter are also visible. In the middle is 2593, recently rebranded as a BTP vehicle to permit the use of blue lights when attending incidents, while on the right is 2592 in original livery. Curiously the BTP number L91 was carried by both KE05JLV and 2593, suggesting that the former will be replaced.

Kim RennieI've only ever seen Iveco's L91 and L92 in BTP use. I think these may be based at ERU depots during the Diamond Jubilee/Olympic period.Mon 23/01/2012, 18:28
Thomas YoungSeveral people have pointed out that the BTP only had two of these Ivecos, so I have amended the caption accordingly.Mon 23/01/2012, 23:36
