Can anyone from Cheshire FB enlighten us as to what equipment this vehicle carries and how many crew operate it. Does it get mobilised to all RTC's in their area?

Matt, it carries a small set of spreaders and cutters, first aid equipment fire extinguishers etc.It can carry a crew of three and there are two of these units, one at Sandbach the other at Holmes Chapel, both retained stations very close to motorway junctions.
