It looks as though Scania 4-axle grab-loader MV69KVM is indeed a full-time service vehicle rather than being a hire as was first thought. It can regularly be seen in the lorry yard at Acton Works (as here on 5th December 2020), and it has been confirmed that the side lettering is properly applied and not just on labels. This side-on view shows more detail of the hydraulic grab arm and the bar attached to a roll-out cover for the loadspace. I was wondering about the purpose of the horizontal handrail above the cab windows, but it is perhaps just to facilitate cleaning of the cabsides, as there is also a large footstep just behind the cab door handle. Looking at Ray's earlier photo of this lorry, I noticed there is also what looks to be a handrail in the sunvisor above the windscreen, possibly for the same purpose.
