30161 in Coventry has had a LH side scrape recently. Still some damaged panels and has had a panel over rear wheel arch replaced so far.

Optare Versa Hybrid 30128 (YJ12 GUE) was being towed out of the Plymouth Road depot by a Diamond recovery vehicle when I passed by at 9am this morning.

Aren't they all meant to be gone by now? I keep seeing two on the S2/3 every week. Forgot the fleetnumber but I keep seeing a 3012*.

None left in service. None have been on S2 or S3 for months!

As mentioned above, I saw 30128 (YJ12 GUE) last Thursday, albeit behind a Diamond tow truck. The other one I see from time to time is 30135 (Y12 GUG) but the last time I saw it was on 12 August 2017 on the 70.

30128 was the one I constantly kept on seeing on the S2.
