Never one to brag about who he has met recently Ed Beresford shakes hands with the Ruler and Queen of England and the Empire. The Sovereign demanded an audience with Ed to discuss the Dual Fuel project and to offer her congratulations to Brit European for winning the Low Carbon Award at the 2014 Motor Transport Awards Ceremony. Ed has not been seen since this shot was taken!

A special prize for the most hilarious (or otherwise) caption to go with the photo.

The winner of the most hilarious caption was won by Mick Darlo with
Phillip and i seem to have a slight problem with gas,pull my glove and you'll hear what one means.

Mick wins a bottle of Scotch

By now we will all have received various emails and memo's about the perils and pitfalls of posting comments on Social Media sites such as Facebook and Twitter and how if you post something you shouldn't have then consequences are likely to follow.

There are more people in the world who think Social Media sites are a pain to society than those who think they are wonderful. The trouble here is that we often leave ourselves open to criticism and condemnation by making comments which we know deep down are likely to cause offence. Maybe thats why we write them! However, sometimes we cross the line with what we say and that's when the problems start!

As a Company we will not condone this and why should we? We are still a family business with family principles and that's when these self induced problems really stand out.

So please, think before you write....will this offend anyone, is what I am writing breaching Company Policy etc etc? It is in your best interests to do so.

This year’s conference sponsors were MAN whose display of their latest generation Euro 6 engines in the exhibition area was met with great interest. Brit European brought along one of their dual fuel trucks, complete with three JCBs on a low loader. Graham Lackey, Brit European MD, was on hand once again to update delegates who attended in 2013 about the Brit European dual fuel story.
