Volunteers of a Lorry Watch scheme reported the firm after spotting the LGVs breaking the 18-tonne limit on Bradford-on-Avon's town bridge. On 7 October, Swindon Magistrates' Court issued a £500 fine for each offence, a £50 victim surcharge and £370 costs to the counciltotalling £2420.

• Illegal fuel is estimated to have accounted for as much as 6% of the GB diesel market in 2011/12, figures from HMRC have shown. It represents a continued decline in the market share of illicit diesel, which peaked at 9% in 2008/09 and remained at that level in 2009/10, before falling to 7% in 2010/11. The loss of duty arising from this 6% was £1.25bn, said HMRC.

• Reed Boardall Group has taken delivery of 50 new trucks all Volvo FH 6x2s with the Euro-5 D13C 500hp engine and Globetrotter cabs as part of its fleet renewal programme. The firm said the acquisition was made as part of its policy of running a fleet of vehicles less than three years old.

• Suckling Transport has appointed Jesus Ciria as its new MD. The firm was bought by Italian fuel transport firm Silvio Bertani Group for an undisclosed sum in May. Ciria, a Spaniard with long experience in tanker operations, will succeed Peter Lamer, who will retire after 40 years at the company at the end of this month.
