Watch out fly-tippers, Megas are on the case

A FORMIDABLE fleet of four Mega vans will act as fast-response units to the menace of fly-tipping.

The 497cc diesel-engined vans have been chosen by Hambleton District Council in Yorkshire for operations in urban and leisure sectors.

As well as being made from 100% recyclable materials, the Mega vans achieve 80mpg.

Mike Kneebone, operational services manager at Hambleton District Council, said: ‘The Mega is an economical load-carrier perfectly suited to our needs. The Megas enable us to respond quickly to fly-tipping and local complaints from the public and allow us to return to our routine schedule as quickly as possible.’

Last year, a van was taken on by the Police National CBRN (Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear) at its training centre near Salisbury.
