Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Container carrier Kabin King

of I,ittleover, Derbyshire appeared at a Birmingham public inquiry after prohibition notices were issued on the company's vehicles operated under interim authority.

Director Sukhedar Singh Atwal, who was disqualified from driving after a drinking and driving conviction, said being off the road had meant it was difficult to get vehicles into a garage for regular maintenance.

The company was seeking a new seven-vehicle licence in the West Midlands with depots in Smethwick and Burton upon Trent.

A petition from neighbouring residents objecting to the Burton proposals was received by the traffic area office, but no petitioners attended the inquiry. The company said residents did not like the fact that it used to carry out its own maintenance. Arrangements for the vehicles to be maintained by a commercial garage have now been made.

Singh's disqualification has expired and the North Western Traffic Commissioner has returned his LGV licence.

The West Midland deputy traffic commissioner Gerrard Sullivan granted the licence.
