Eastbourne Corporation Regent V 66, KHC366, embedded in the Lamb Inn public house following its crash. The building had to be inspected by surveyors before the bus was removed.
66 was rebuilt by East Lancashire at the Neepsend works in Sheffield and re-entered service in December 1965. It was withdrawn from service in May 1975 and rebuilt in the Corporation workshops as a recovery vehicle in which form it survives in preservation, I believe in Cornwall. It was re-registered VSV990 when converted but has now been re-united with its original registration.
