Massive fire at Kev's last night not a good sight but there no Services today or Monday.
Also devastating as they have invested in new vehicles as well

Thats a terrible picture. At least nobody was hurt, but something like that could easily put a company out of business. Hopefully they'll pull through.

They have released a statement that said all but one of their buses were destroyed, and thanking other operators in the area for stepping in to help.

I wish them well.

Glad I finally took the opportunity last year, to ride one of their Plaxton Primos !!

'All but one' means that 21 buses were destroyed; just hope that owners Wendy and Kevin Nind are able keep the company going and come out stronger as a result of this horrific fire.

Solo YJ62FYZ was the only survivor . As documented elsewhere , 3 new E200's have joined the fleet along with 8 second hand ones. A number of ex "West Midlands" Volvo single deckers have also been borrowed from The Green Bus. . I'm sure that lots of hard work has gone in to keeping services running. Well done !
