Actress/model Kelly Brook is facing almost $750 (£500) in fines after failing to renew the road tax licence on her luxury vehicle.

The Piranha 3D star has been hit with four $186 (£120) penalty tickets after officials spotted her Mercedes parked outside her London residence with an out-of-date tax disc.

The road fund licence was due for renewal at the end of March (13) but the British beauty has apparently failed to pay the annual bill and now faces repeat fines until she settles the outstanding amount or moves her car off-road.

If the Brit pays the penalties within 28 days of the tickets being issued she will only have to hand over half the $744 (£480) fine.
