Famous motorcar Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' banned from procession
London, Jul 9 (ANI): Famous motorcar Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has been banned from taking part in a lord mayor's procession because it does not have an MoT.
Thousands of people had been looking forward to seeing the famous flying car, but cops said that they would not bend the rules.
"Our priority is the safety of the public and we cannot make exceptions," the Sun quoted spokesman Harry Mitchell as saying.
The vehicle, which featured in the classic 1968 film of the same name, was due to join a huge parade through Norwich on July 11.
"Although the road is closed for the procession, it is still classed as a public highway and the DVLA is clear that all vehicles in the procession need to be fully covered," Helen Selleck, the city council's events manager, said.
The car was due to be displayed by Norwich's Theatre Royal.
"We are very disappointed Chitty will not be seen on the streets," spokesman John Bultitude added. (ANI)
