Here, we use the primary detections of the VPHAS+ data release 2 (DR2) (Drew et al., 2014, Cat. II/341), accessible through the ESO Science Archive. It delivers PSF magnitudes, expressed in the Vega system, for 24 per cent of the survey area. We acquired optical spectroscopy for 17 white dwarf candidates on 2014 April 28-30 with the visual and near-UV FOcal Reducer and low dispersion Spectrograph (FORS2), mounted on the Very Large Telescope (VLT) UT1 (Antu).
