• Maintenance problems have led to the 26 vehicle PSV operators licence of CH Field of Bristol being prematurely terminated so that it expires at the end of May 1988 instead of 1990 by Western Traffic Commissioner Major General John Carpenter. The company was called to disciplinary proceedings following 13 prohibitions including five immediates between October 1985 and October 1986.
Field operates from depots at Paulton and Frome and evidence was given by a vehicle examiner that it was the Frome-based vehicles that were in a poor condition. He felt the age of the fleet and its maintenance history made the Frome vehicles unreliable with a lot of time having to be devoted to running repairs.
