Durbin, Patchway (trading as Western Roadways of Bristol) RDF880G, a Bedford VAL70 with Caetano Estoril C53F body, new in 1969.
An early example of a Caetano body supplied to a British operator, in the contemporary flashy paintwork style that featured on most of their bodies at the time - a kind of latterday foreign successor to Yeates maybe. Note the East Yorkshire Panther with rare Weymann Topaz II body just visible in the background, and would that be a Northern coach next to it ?
