This vehicle was written off attending the floods in Halstead in 2001 and was eventually replaced by EU54 YAY. The short term replacement was a venerable second hand RT purchased from Tyne & Wear MFB in the form of Volvo FL6.14 F843 JBB. L676 LOO was sold after it was written off to Dublin Fire Brigade and refitted with a tail lift.

It is rumoured that despite being written off, this vehicle was rebuilt for use with the Dublin Fire Brigade.
