Sheikh's son brags that Scotland Yard returned his seized Ferrari they used in publicity drive because of his connections
The son of a billionaire sheikh whose £200,000 Ferrari was displayed outside Scotland Yard as a warning to uninsured drivers has bragged how it was returned when police discovered who he was.
The supercar was put on show outside the Met HQ to let illegal drivers know that their cars would be seized - whatever they were driving.
But the owner of the Ferrari FF, Sheikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi - son of the Emir of Ajman, in the United Arab Emirates - boasted on his Facebook page that the Yard had handed the keys back as soon as they identified him.
He wrote online: 'Arab money talks.'
