New to Lewis' of Llangeitho in September 2013; this vehicle has now been acquired by Go North East, following its return to the lessor (Dawson Group). It has received fleet number 723 at Go North East, and is one of a batch of 8 pre-owned Optare Solos being acquired by Go North East, due to a shortage of minibuses following the award of contracts. This example, which has seatbelts, is expected to be allocated to Hexham Depot once it has been prepared for service, as a replacement vehicle for one of the two Dennis MPD/Alexander Mini Pointer vehicles at Hexham.
