Across the UK, a total of 469,696 new cars registered in plate-change September. That was up from 1.6%.

The number is considerably higher in England, due to the introduction of new number plates last month.

The 66 number plate was introduced at the start of the month.

Growth was driven by the fleet sector, which saw a 7.3% rise.

Private registrations fell by 1.7%.

Some 2.15 million cars have been registered in 2016 so far, up 2.6% on the same period last year.
