Details: Steve and I made the long and rather bleak walk down to First's Dagenham Garage on 1st August 2012, primarily to try and determine whether this recently reported van was actually a service vehicle. As the photo shows, the results were somewhat inconclusive. SP12UVE was an anonymous Ford Transit Connect van, in a similar registration series to lettered SV SP12LUO. However, it was parked in an area usually used by crew ferry contractors (note the D2D markings on the parking bays, this being for the firm Door-2-Door), and two other larger vans were seen nearby in First livery (albeit unlettered). Anyway, I have added SP12UVE to the database as a First vehicle for now. Also visible in this photo is one of two anonymous white 58-reg Ford Transit minibuses and also parts of two silver Ford Galaxy cars. All of these had private hire licence stickers in the windscreens, proving that crew ferry duties here are still undertaken by contractors.
