EU03 FHK In front of the large Mercedes truck is a Sprinter with riot grille. Notice the lack of a roof-mounted light bar. Individual blue lights around the periphery of the roof give emergency warning instead. Also notice the heavily tinted glass on the sides.
Inside the rear of the Mercedes are a number of seats and stowage compartments.

EO03 FHT This is a MoD police quad bike very much at home on muddy forest tracks.
A look at the front / side of the red quad. Notice the two small MoD police crests of the front. It is obviously not used for high-visibility policing.
The rear / side view of the all terrain vehicle. A further small crest is shown on the back.

S225 TNE This Land Rover Defender is used by Merseyside Police at Liverpool John Lennon Airport. The most interesting thing about this vehicle is the twin coloured light bar. The blue light is used to indicate its police status and the amber light is a requirement for all vehicles that drive on the apron.
The rear view of the Land Rover. Notice that there are additional red filters on the rearmost roof light bar.

D439 KVM A Ford Capri traffic policing car, sister vehicle of the one above. This preserved vehicle looks exactly as it did when it was in service with Greater Manchester Police in the 1980s.
One of the trademarks of 80’s traffic police cars was the enormous rear police sign. You can see here how it looks like a spoiler and lights up with ‘police’ on the left hand side and can show ‘stop’ in red on the right.

LAR 988C This Ford Anglia dates from 1965 and was made famous by appearing in many episodes of the vintage police television show Heartbeat. Notice the white doors and front half of the roof. There is also a ‘police’ roofbox fitted with a blue flashing beacon on top. This type of box and beacon set-up was in use on UK police cars through to the mid 1990s.
