Was recently passed some more pics to go with the ones l've posted in another thread .


We were in Otago at Easter, wonder what the local coppers thought of going from a Valiant to a Mini?



Probably thought they were a lot easier to park in town for one and much easier for nipping around some of those very hilly streets you find in Dunedin too .

My brothers Police Minivan above being used on location in Muswell Hill, London for the filming of a new 3-Part ITV drama about serial killer Dennis Nilsen.
David Tennant will play Nilsen also known as the 'Muswell Hill Murderer' in the three-part ITV series, titled Des, which will follow his trial.
Des will air on ITV in 2020.

1967/1968 registrations (CA Denbighshire and JC Caernarfonshire) so Gwynedd Constabulary which was formed from Anglesey, Caernarfonshire, Merionethshire Constabularies in the ‘50s with Flintshire and Denbighshire Constabularies joining in 1967.
Anoraks note, my father had a 1968 Humber Sceptre registered GJC 300G registered in Caernarfon!

Someone on Facebook suggested this Police Moke was from the Scilly Isles? Registration is from Devon in December 1966. Pretty unusual conversion?

I think that is a "Barton Hard Top".

Was offered through dealers.

Doesn't it just.

Not as much as this though.

That's so cool. Not only is it cool your brother's minivan was used, but I'm actually interested in show too. I like Tennant a lot.
