FC 00 AA This Royal Air Force bomb disposal unit is a Leyland DAF truck. Notice the grilles on roof-mounted blue lights and siren. Due to the severity of bomb incidents, the RAF are permitted to use blue lights and sirens.

The front view. Usually only seen on TV news programmes, these bomb disposal units are very few in number and it is not unusual for them to travel for over an hour to get to an incident scene.

In the back of the truck is a large array of equipment, including a robot. Probably the oddest emergency vehicle on UKev, this robot can remotely pick up and move objects without risking human life. On-board cameras ensure the operators can see exactly what it is doing.
