Details: Under the new vehicle registration system introduced in 2001, the first letter tells you the area in which the vehicle was registered. An effort was made to make these logical, hence London is L, Manchester and Merseyside is M etc. Over the past few years, most central fleet service vehicles have had registrations starting in L, exceptions being Volkswagens (which are nearly always R for Reading), Mercedes (W for West of England) and Peugeots (K for Kettering). Renault became a significant supplier from 2004 onwards, early additions having a mixed bag of registration areas including K, L and W and also F (Fens and Forest, Notts/Lincs), G (Garden of England, Kent/Sussex), S (Scotland) and Y (Yorkshire). From spring 2012 onwards, all Renaults had L marks, until a batch of electric Kangoos arrived in autumn 2017 with Ms. Diesel Kangoos remained with Ls until April 2019, with everything since then being M. I suppose this may be down to which dealership supplies each vehicle. Anyway, registered in Manchester and Merseyside on 8th May 2019, and seen in the Acton Works car park twenty days later, 8882R is a standard Kangoo Maxi van in LUL livery.
