Old vehicles raise thousands for government

Fri, 26 Jul 2013

More than £200,000 has been made from a vehicle and plant auction organised by government.

The Department of Infrastructure's annual event saw over 200 registered buyers come forward.

100 lots went out for auction - more than usual - with this attributed to the department's efforts to streamline its service delivery and reduce its vehicle and plant fleet.

The biggest sale of the day came from a Grove 50 tonne crane that went for £49,000.

Among the other items that went under the hammer was an old paramedic's van that belonged to the health service.
