Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service - Reserve Tender
This fire appliance is a spare appliance for Suffolk fire and rescue service. This is a unique appliance specially adapted to cover the village of Needham Market where there is a very low railway bridge. this means that the Light bar is mounted onto the front of the appliance and the ladder gantry sunk lower into the body work.
The appliance is seen here on the run at Sudbury Fire Station as the second appliance.
