This interesting van was found parked near Monument Station on 24th July 2021. Numbered 8993F it is a long-wheelbase high-roof Ford Transit Mk8 van, with a yellow band and 'Rapid Response Vehicle' lettering added to the standard LUL livery. Delivered in late 2020, this van has been noted parked inside Griffith House on several occasions, suggesting that it is based there, perhaps as the pumps and drainage emergency vehicle. This role was last fulfilled by Ford Transit van 7818F, which carried an identical livery but which was withdrawn in spring 2019 and was not ULEZ-compliant. Could it be that 8993F was ordered as a replacement but was delayed? It is notable that other vehicles numbered in the 89xx range were delivered from spring 2019 onwards. Comparing the livery on this van with the similar scheme applied to 8684F, it will be noted that the yellow stripe has been applied parallel to the skirt, rather than at a slight angle. 8993F also has a red stripe applied above the skirt, but it lacks the red bonnet found on 8684F.
