A supplier to the Greater Manchester Police (GMP) recently announcing that it’s now “virtually impossible to drive a car into the centre [of Manchester] without having its licence plate, colour and time of entry recorded.”

Around 600,000 number plates are recorded as day, and stored up to five years.
