Would-be Scandi colour scheme 727.

Can anyone tell me who flies a 727 coloured white, with the forward section painted red. I've seen it a couple of times going into Doncaster. It resembles one of the Scandinavian countries colour schemes I think.
Also what work is it doing?
All info only for a curious would-be spotter.
Thanks for any info. N.Z.

It belongs to OSRL and specialises in Oil Spilll spraying to disperse the slick before harm can come to marine life and coastlines. There might be a second one.

In the meantime.....

There are two of them in fact, both based at Doncaster. They are Valsan 727RE re-engined variants, one of them is the last 727 built.
