Jimmy Savile’s number plate from paedo’s Rolls Royce ‘The Beast’ on sale
A personalised number plate belonging to evil paedophile Jimmy Savile is going on sale for a staggering £25,000.
The "JS 247" plate, which used to be on the disgraced DJ's Rolls Royce Corniche convertible, was advertised inside a Sunday newspaper.
It was put up for sale by an unnamed trader, who hasn't said that it used to belong to Savile, who died in 2011.
The number 247, after his initials, relates to BBC Radio 1's original medium wave frequency.
In the advert, the anonymous seller described the number plate as a "Cherished Plate for Christmas".
