30030 broken down at Hampton-in-Arden on the 82 this morning.

Judging by the large piece of component on the floor next to it I would imagine it will be off the road for sometime...

11518 (FD54 DHN) Volvo B12B/Plaxton Panther was on the Ridgeway School service in Redditch this afternoon.
I wonder if it is a part replacement for 11520 and 11522 which, according to 'March Fleet Changes', were sold to Scania last month.
