Category: Incidents/Accidents
A tragic incident occurred on this vehicle in the small hours of 6th July 1978 at Taunton. Bags of linen had been stowed in a vestibule, unfortunately next to a wall heater which was turned on during the night. The bags of linen began to smoulder, releasing smoke and gases into the ventilation system of the coach. Sadly 12 people perished even before any fire even broke out.
