Plea for information on old Glossop fire engine

Enthusiasts who are restoring an old Glossop fire engine are asking locals for any information about it. The Austin K4 MerryWeather turntable fire engine, registration GXN 243, dates from the 1940s. Steven Blanch told the Gazette "We have recently acquired this fire engine out of a scrap yard and so far we know that it spent its working life in Glossop and Buxton so any more info or pictures would be welcome".
