Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Loughborough-based PSV dealer WS Yeates has supplied Grey Green Coaches of London with seven new Volvo BM coaches in a deal worth 2650,000.

The new vehicles are based on Volvo's BIOM DL chassis, fitted with the 183kW (245hp) Volvo THD100 engine coupled to a ZE S6-80 six-speed manual gearbox. Six have bodywork by Maxtor's; the seventh is bodied by Hestair Duple.

The Plaxtons bodies are the new Paramount III, announced at last year's motor show. Three are high-floor 3500 models fitted with 49 reclining seats, a removable toilet compartment and a coffee machine. The remaining three are low-floor 3200 models with 53 reclining seats.

These coaches bring to 27 the number of Volvos in Grey Green's 92-strong fleet. They will be used on a wide variety of work both in Britain and on the European mainland.

• Grey-Green last week started operating double-deck buses for the first time on a service in East London won under tender from London Regional Tramsport. It is operated by ten second-hand Daimler Fleetline doubledeckers. To reduce vandalism the upper decks are closed to passengers after the peak period.
