There were about fourteen testing ND convoy procedures. The convoy started off at Bowburn services Durham and carried on around the county coming back up the A19 and into the services again. All on blue lights and with police escort. I'll post some more photos soon.

There only appear to be 2 ND vehicles, I would guess an IRU and a Re dressing unit I have been told. For a full IRU job there are 10 support pumps, so this would be logical.
The Police weren't riding Matchless 350s were they? Should there not be a Landrover staff car?
