A wealthy businesswoman has paid £233,000 for the Hindu-related registration plate KR15 HNA – but it's thought that she doesn't even own a car.
Perhaps it was an impulse buy for a bit of good car-ma.
The plate was sold to the London-based businesswoman of Indian heritage at an auction at the Casa Hotel in Chesterfield.

Bidding started off at £27,000 and quickly shot up as a number of people fought to get their hands on the registration.
It is the most expensive modern plate ever sold by the DVLA - smashing the previous record of £100,000 for MR51 NGH, back in 2006.
The room was crammed with buyers and more people were bidding over the phone and online.

A similar plate, KR15 HAN, sold for a staggering £98,500.
Matthew Dainton, from DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: 'We had high hopes for KR15 HAN and KR15 HNA after a lot of interest being registered beforehand.
'Both of these current style registrations contributed to an enthralling atmosphere in the auction hall, and it's fantastic to see the prices they have achieved.'
Another rich motorist paid almost £100,000 for the plate 458 S - which will go on his Ferrari.
John Collins, who runs Ferrari dealership Talacrest, holds the record for any registration plate.
Last year he paid £518,000 for 25 O.
