And the most costly number plate, 51 NGH (Singh), which fetched 254,000 pounds, went at auction to a mystery buyer.

There were other Asians who paid huge sums to the DVLA, which include-18,000 pounds for AHM 5D (Ahmed), 51,500 pounds for 1 RAN (Iran), 20,500 pounds for SYR 1A (Syria), 16,500 pounds for 81 ACK (Black) and 27,200 pounds for WEL 5H (Welsh).

Figures revealed that plate sales fetched 87million pounds for the Treasury last year.
