What is the new sapphire front?

RE: New repaint 21
It is 1531, was involved in a front end damage accident near Cockfield whilst operating on Service 6 a few weeks ago.

The whole front end needed to be replaced.

Understand no other vehicles involved.

It's darker purple. A few VDL have it and 7510 and a few MMC Ashington buses have it

Thank you for that, so it'd basically the new livery like the 22/23/24 pulsars, Darlington streetlites and Ashington MMCs

How did they manage that if no other vehicles were involved?

Can't quite make out where it is, but I don't think anywhere along that road is particularly bad.

And I don't believe it was particularly cold that day either?

Didn't know where else to put this, however after 8 years on here I'm finally posting in Arriva section!

Down in leeds atm, the sapphire versas allocated to the 167 today is absolutely immaculate. ANE could learn a lot from then

Believe it or not those Sapphire Versa's were formerly of Yorkshire Tiger! They recently transferred to Arriva Yorkshire and had a spruce up/Sapphire repaint after YT gave up the airport services they used to be allocated to, hence why they're in such good nick!
