South Yorkshires CARPS
Following om from the picture I posted the other day of Humbersides CARP at Grimsby Peakes Lane here are South Yorkshires 4 CARPS (2 deep) parked last summer out of the county and out of use awaiting a decision.
Having watched the programme tonight both Humbersides CFO and some woman from S Yorkshire said 'it wasn't their fault' it was a 'supplier cock up' and Humberside are going to use their £520,000 vehicle as a dedicated ariel which they could have bought for two thirds of the price !
