Check Out The New £5 Note!

Britain’s new £5 note featuring Sir Winston Churchill has been unveiled and while it is a far-superior than its predecessor it also comes with an unlikely warning - be careful when spending it.

The note is printed on polymer, a think plastic film that is so durable it can survive a spin in the washing machine, is almost untearable, and will last about five years - rather than the usual 18 months.

However, there is one unlikely side effect. The polymer-coating means notes can stick together, raising fears that shoppers, especially the elderly, may accidentally end up paying twice when settling bills.
