Ronaldo's Rolling In It

Hi all,

Oh how I wish it were yesterday. But they say every day is a gift, that's why it's called the present.

This weekend another big spender proved what he will do to get his hands on the perfect personalised number plate, namely Mr. Cristiano Ronaldo. Manchester united football star Ronaldo purchased the registration CR7, his initials, and his shirt number, for a massive £150,000. Earlier this month Ronaldo spent another £340,000 on a black Rolls Royce Phantom, taking his total spending to £490,000 with Doncaster based luxury car firm Liquid 45.

Naturally one would assume he would put the new plate on the car he spent nearly half a million on, right? Wrong, the number plate is not going to be put on the new car, but on his "not so expensive" £140,000 silver Bentley GT convertible.

Rumour has it that Cristiano Ronaldo is also planning to open a nightclub named "CR7" in Portugal. A source says "Cristiano is developing an obsession with CR7. It has to be on everything he owns - cars included."

Watch Your Back...End

Afternoon all,

All day long I have read reports stating "Number Plate Crime is on the Increase". it seems that the recent wave of number plate thefts is linked to the recent rise in fuel prices.

Thieves are stealing number plates from vehicles similar to their own to commit fill and drive fuel thefts. Our sources say there were over 14,000 "car cloning" cases last year, and advise anyone who is a victim of this kind of fraud to repot it to the Police. In some cases, innocent car owners have been summoned to court for unpaid speeding fines and even more serious crimes.

Bedfordshire Police are hoping to reduce the number of vehicle related crimes by issuing tamper proof number plates. Police have said, "In an effort to combat this problem, Bedfordshire Police and South Bedfordshire Community Safety Partnership have teamed up to secure your number plates free of charge."

A Brief Introduction

Good morning all,

While trawling the World Wide Web searching for ideas about what I should discuss in my first post, I found myself sitting at my desk wondering, “How should I expect anybody to care about anything I say, if they have no idea who I am or what I do?” and came to the conclusion that I would introduce myself, it seems only polite to do so, right?

And so, without further ado, I would like to introduce…myself!

My name is Ben, the newest addition to the team. I will be updating the Numberplates.com Blog, news section, and creating content for our newly revamped website, helping to keep you as up to date as possible with number plate related…stuff.

I do not want to bore anyone, nor do I want to tell my life story (as interesting, or not, as it may be), so I shall leave it at that for now.

Watch this space for updates.
