Surveillance Radar Approach - is this still available at any civil UK airfield ?

I haven't heard one of these in action for at least fifteen, maybe twenty, years. Leeds Bradford used to routinely offer them to runways 15 and 28 as they were decades ago. At first, half-milers with the Plessey 430 then one mile with the Watchman. The latter radar is still there but the old PPI monochrome screens are long gone. I guess any airfield which had ILS at only one end of the runway years back would have been in the same position, e.g. Bristol, Luton.
