Unfortunately in the early hours of May 13th, our friends at Western Greyhound were victim to what appears to be an arson attack at their premises in Newquay. 35 vehicles (third of their fleet) were destroyed in the attack. Part of their business continuity plan was to draft in buses from operators and dealers to ensure continuity of their service whilst they look towards finding permanent replacements for the destroyed vehicles. Carmel were happy to help, by lending two Mercedes Plaxton Beavers SF51 PVU and WP52 YZA. Both vehicles are now in regular service in Cornwall every day.
