ALL emergency service ‘priority’ vehicles will now have to carry flashing blue lights to fall in line with most of Europe.

Previously only police vehicles had the blue lights but now fire engines, ambulances and Civil Protection vehicles will have to switch colours within a two-year period.

Orange flashing lights will still be used by slow-moving vehicles, wide loads or those vehicles that are stopped while performing a service or work on the road, such as breakdown trucks or road maintenance teams.
