LTB 072/2019 dated 31 January 2019 explained that following two incidents of wind deflectors becoming detached from Cartwright (95 York Container) Double Deck Trailers whilst in use, safety concerns were raised with Royal Mail Logistics and Fleet which prompted an urgent investigation followed by discussions between RM Fleet Engineering Managers and the CWU/HQ Health Safety & Environment Department along with the manufacturer. Royal Mail took prompt action by withdrawing 130 trailers for immediate attention and Cartwright the manufacturer has swiftly engineered a modification to overcome the problem and Cartwright engineers are travelling around the country presently, undertaking the re-work modification and returning trailers to service. See attached diagrams.

Please see attached part of the modification that will identify a trailer is OK to use.

Yours sincerely
