Sought-after car registration has been a good investment

Children adore being spoilt by their grandparents, but is it too much?

You know somebody has too much money when they collect car registration plates.

This week I read about a businessman who has rejected an offer of more than £6m for his ‘F1’ plate.

Bradford-based entrepreneur Afzal Khan has apparently spent a small fortune building up one of the world’s largest private plate collections.

His favourite plate is the F1 one attached to his beloved Bugatti Veyron.

Apparently Mr Khan bought the 109-year-old registration for £440,000 five years ago and has turned down the £6m offer because he thinks it’s worth more – and doesn’t want to sell it anyway.

Whatever you think of private plates, you have to admit he’s made a pretty good investment
