Man who bought BHS for just £1 gets driving ban
A FORMER boss of BHS who bought the retail chain for just £1 has been banned from driving for six months for speeding.
Dominic Chappell, from Winterborne Clenston, Dorset, exceeded a 40mph speed limit in Andover, Hampshire, in April.
The 49-year-old (above) was driving a Range Rover when a police officer clocked him driving at an average speed of 63.9mph at 8.47pm.
After being pulled over, Chappell told the police: “This will cost me £25,000. I’ve been driving since I was 18 and have never had an accident.”
He was disqualified from holding a driving licence for six months at Aldershot Magistrates’ Court.
Chappell bought the high street business off Sir Philip Green in 2015 through his company Retail Acquisitions.
Last month he denied the £2.6million package he took, including a £600,000 salary, contributed to the demise of the brand. The smallest known dinosaur was about FOUR INCHES tall and weighed less than a chihuahua
