Luxury cars registered up to 400 MILES away are spotted in Cornwall

Luxury vehicles worth up to £150,000 were today spotted in a Cornish town popular with wealthy second home owners - but their numberplates reveal they were registered hundreds of miles away.

Motors including a £40,000 BMW X3 and a Land Rover Discovery costing £30,000 were also seen in car parks in the village of Rock, which is home to celebrities including chef Gordon Ramsay and comedian Harry Enfield.

Numberplate records revealed the vehicles pictured were registered up to 400 miles away in places like London, East Anglia and Shrewsbury, suggesting they could be owned by motorists not from the area.

Among the most expensive motors photographed in the coastal fishing village was a Bentley Bentayga V8 Auto costing upwards of £146,700 new and had been registered in Norwich in September 2019.

It came as the Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall said high-profile figures have the chance to positively influence the nation by not travelling to the South West after the third national lockdown began.

Alison Hernandez said: 'We know Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are absolutely beautiful and it's totally understandable that people would want to spend time here.

'However, at a time when stopping the spread of this terrible virus is more important than ever, I must urge people not to make unnecessary journeys to the region. I would particularly like to appeal to celebrities and high-profile social media stars.
