Could be something conficated under the Proceeds of Crime Act?
I 've heard rumours that various covert branches of our MOD get to use them.

Funnily enough, I was in Gravelines near Dunkerque last w/e and the local fire service, the Pompiers, cut up a newish Renault in a simulated accident recovery.
roof, doors, seats all munched.
It was fine looking to start, completely fucked at the end.

They sound like the Leicestershire fire brigade. Call them out for anything and they chop the roofs off everything in the area.
