Unfortunately we bring you the sad news that two of our buses have been withdrawn today due to exceptional circumstances.
Firstly, we understand that Dennis Dart 34847 GX06DWZ has suffered a major engine fire today which has caused severe damage to the vehicle.
Also today, Volvo Olympian 16362 N362LPN has suffered severe damage to its top deck after a collision with a tree.
It is likely that both vehicles will be sold for scrap as a result of today’s events, as the cost of repairing them will be extortionately high. This has also happened at a time when there have been a number of breakdowns over the past few days, so there is currently a huge vehicle shortage so there is a high chance of some buses visiting Hastings depot temporarily on loan.
Updates will follow.
