GLC-LFB - Experimental mini-pump fire engine

Based on a Ford Transit, the London Fire Brigade trialled a series of mini or first-strike fire engines. Seen here is a transit which carried a crew of four, 100 gallons (450 litres) of water, a hose reel, compact fire pump and a hook ladder. Intended as a response to inner city areas and the growth of shopping centres, the vehicle was placed at a number of stations on evaluation. Despite some favourable comments on its introduction, none of the mini fire engines were brought into general operational service
