My understanding is the internal? central and off side mirrors are obligatory, the near side optional but highly recommended, esp. for motorway driving. Except for vans when the nearside becomes obligatory too.

Construction and Use Regulations.

The IVA manual has a diagram showing the field of view required for the mirrors. Note that if you have a van then a rear view mirror is useless anyway, but as long as you can conform to the requirements it can be any combination of mirrors.
