Default V40 ambulance in Glasgow

Today while walking in Glasgow I saw a V40 Ambulance! I'd never seen one before and didn't think the ambulance service would be using what is now quite an old car?

Anyone else seen these?

They are registered businesses which provides first aid and medical assistance at events across they country
They usually employ individuals from a medical background, Doctor’s, nurses ambulance personnel and anyone suitably trained
Without the service large public events could not take place
This was predominantly covered by Red Cross, St Andrew’s Ambulance and
St Johns Ambulance
Vehicles are usually only used to transport employees and supplys
Casualties can only be transported in suitable vehicles with relevant insurance, usually left to local Ambulance service
Red Cross and St. John’s Ambulance provide frontline Ambulances around the world

I used to be a Red Cross volunteer providing this service at local events

Always thought "Private Ambulances" transported dead people from wherever they died to the funeral directors/morgue?

Cheers
