Mercerdes Benz Vario O814D P114HCH was operated in the East Suffolk area by both Nightingales and Waylands Minibus
P114HCH on Waylands' Lowestoft Town Service 107 in January 2008 

The bus has an interesting history which started when it was new with Midland Fox in June 1997 (which had become part of the Cowie Group). Later that year it was re-branded as Arriva Fox County and six years later it merged with Arriva Derby and Arriva Midland North to form Arriva Midlands

The Vario subsequently moved on to Pete's Travel trading as Peoples Express. That business (and P114HCH) was subsequently sold to the Go Ahead Group in March 2006 who consolidated their operations on one license trading as Birmingham Coach Company

Nightingales of Beccles later acquired the vehicle from near neighbours Berry (Waylands Minibus) in May 2009 and subsequently re registered it as HIL8446
