A driver removed the front number plate of his car to make the vehicle look ‘cool’, police have revealed.

Officers stopped the driver in town this morning after spotting that the car was missing a number plate at the front.

Dave Lee, from the Northants Police Road Policing Unit, said: “Just stopped a vehicle for having no front number plate. The usual excuse is that it has just fallen off.

“This driver was really honest. Number plate didn’t fall off. He took it off. Reason. It makes the car look cool.”

The driver was reported for the incident and is likely to be given a fine, according to police.
