Nice appliance the TK "Angus", they were not that strong though. A sister Dorset appliance BPR182Y was destroyed when a tree fell on it in the storm of 1987, sadly two firemen from I think Christchurch were killed. I read elsewhere on the web that HCB Angus stopped building bodywork like the one in this picture and just built the High Strengh Cab version after that night in 1987. Although the HSC Version didn't look as good it was the right choice to only build it, the firemen deserve a vehicle that will protect them should they have an accident.
