Telecoms boss told to surrender 'obscene' number plate
A motorist who bought the cheeky number plate 'BO11 LUX' for his new car has been ordered by the DVLA to remove it - even though he bought it from their website.
Alan Clarke, 49, from Chesterfield, bought the plate to put on his new black Range Rover and says it left family,
friends and other motorists in stitches when they spotted it.
But within six weeks, he received a stern letter from the DVLA telling him it is an offence for it to still be displayed.
Mr Clarke, who is the chairman of a telecoms company in Chesterfield, Derbys., is baffled by the organisation's stance.
The married father-of-one said: 'It's absolutely ludicrous. I saw it on the DVLA website last November and thought it would be a bit of fun to put it on my new car.
