Groom Crashes Rented £240,000 Ferrari into Wall on His Wedding Day
I did not earn the name Mr Londoner by chance. It's a hard earned name .... paid for by my long years of working in London.
This week, let me introduce myself with the story of Mr Usman Ali, why? Because he reprresents a huge majority of us Londoners ..... happy reading
Newlyweds Usman Ali and Sakina Parveen
The couple who rented out the doomed Ferrari Spider for their wedding day have been pictured for the first time.
Usman Ali tied the knot with wife Sakina Parveen 24 hours before he drove the £240,000 supercar into a wall, it has been reported.
The 25-year-old, a tyre fitter for his father’s garage, is believed to have paid a £5,000 deposit to hire out the car for his wedding weekend, MailOnline said.
But it all went wrong when his foot got caught on the car mat and he pressed the accelerator instead of the breaking, crashing into the wall of his friends house and leaving the car looking seriously the worse for wear.

Friends said just-married Mr Ali could have have to pay out around £25,000 – from the deposit and a £20,000 insurance excess.
Thankfully, he wasn’t injured in the crash which happened on a residential street in Burnley, Lancashire.
A friend of the groom told MailOnline he still lived with his father in their £55,000 family home, and rented out the car especially for the wedding.
‘He’s a good lad and he works hard, but I don’t think he had enough experience driving this sort of car,’ he said.
