• Orders worth £1.48m were received by Duple Motor Bodies Ltd at the Commercial Motor Show—a record figure, beating that for 1968 by more than 10 per cent—the company announced on Friday. This brings the forward order book for the Group up to £3.5m. Duple is a company which has been in the news recently, due to the takeover by the private investment company Capitarium Ltd, which became effective from September 14.

Whittle and Son; Don Everall Travel; Fred Winkle; Wye Valley Motors; Dodds of Troon; Travel House, Luton; H. and C.
