Details: One corner of the yard at Arriva London's Edmonton garage is used by Sovereign Recovery (as seen here) and on 9th April 2010 two interesting vehicles were parked there. On the right was an un-registered DAF XF recovery truck carrying a livery similar to that of Sovereign but with demonstrator lettering. This vehicle (or an identical one) was present at the Boniface demonstration day at Bruntingthorpe on 16th March 2010 and was in fact driven by visiting LTSV contributor Richard Davis. On the right is an unmarked Vauxhall Combo van that was latterly number 42 in the Arriva London fleet. As has been seen in the past, Sovereign does sometimes take vehicles from Arriva, perhaps in part exchange for 'services rendered'.
