Details: The Arriva London tour operation based at Wandsworth uses fleet numbers MV1 to MV9 to identify its anciliary vehicles, although MV4 has never been reported. Prior to 2006, MV2 was carried by Citroen Berlingo Van R708SLX. It was then transferred to Vauxhall Brava R670SPO as seen here at Hyde Park Corner on 6th December 2006. Ford Transit V767XVL had earlier been renumbered from MV5 to MV1 so it is possible that R708SLX survives with a new number.
The Brava is an unusual design, most of the survivors being from a large batch bought by the AA. These had custom bodies designed for roadside assistance, making them very suitable for bus engineering duties. A similar vehicle was acquired by London United in the form of N511UDP.
