Teen entrepreneur hits gold after making tax disc reminders

A 13-year-old boy could be sitting on a fortune after coming up with the idea of making tax and MOT disc reminders.

In just a few weeks Harvey Millington has had 20,000 orders for his £4 discs.

The teen entrepreneur came up with the idea after asking his Dad why he didn't have a disc anymore, and hearing about motorists getting fined or clamped for forgetting when their car tax or MOT was due, after the government scrapped the tax disc last year.

With his dad's help, he set up Tax Disc Reminder - a limited company which creates tax disc-style inserts which fit into the windscreen holders many still have in their car, reminding drivers of the important dates.

Just eight weeks in, the teen from Taunton has raked in more than £3,000 - though he has not yet decided what to do with his newfound wealth.

Legendary Champion jockey AP McCoy is planning to make his swansong appearance at Taunton Racecourse later when it hosts a Family Fun Day.

AP has ridden well over 4000 winners since 1992 and been crowned National Hunt Champion Jockey on 20 consecutive occasions, a record that is unlikely to ever be beaten.

Earlier this year he announced his retirement at the end of this season so this is expected to be the last time he will ride at Taunton.
