    Sorry - thought it was one of the old ATM fleet. Have moved it to a separate thread now.

    The Bulgarians seem to think it's saveable so it seems reading elsewhere, guess they are not as quick to put something under insurance write off like us if they actually need it.

    No obviously not, but he knows that trespassing is an offence....

    Do you get a pop-up on the forum page saying "Only secure content displayed"? If so, just click on the "Display all content" button next to the warning and the embedded video should appear.

    Here's the direct link to the Youtube video anyway:
