    Been a while since I removed mine on a 56-plate vec-150 I used to have, but is there not 2 screws that are located (underneath) above the number plate ?

    certainly recall 2 screws being there as well, though it may have been on front bumper, worth a check anyway.

    Loosen the torx inside the wheel arches, make sure the rear light are removed, then slide your hand in from the wheel arch and push out, worked a treat everytime, and as said dont be scared but make sure you dont stress / tear the bumper especially at the corners
