Man U fan gets perfect number plate

A Manchester United fan has bought himself the "perfect" registration plate, although it cost him a whopping £12,900.

Paul Quinn, a businessman from Manchester, made a short detour to the DVLA office to acquire the UTD 80Y registration before heading off to Wembley Stadium to watch his team play Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League final.

The 45-year-old owner of the Town Hall Hotel in Eccles was thrilled with the purchase.

He said: "I can't believe it, it's a perfect plate.

"I have another UTD registration, but this is the tops."
