Notes made from plastic - starting with a new lb5 note featuring Churchill -
are being introduced partly to tackle counterfeiters.
Plastic banknotes are to be issued for the first time when the new lb5
featuring Sir Winston Churchill appears in 2016.
A £10 note featuring Jane Austen to follow around a year later will
also be made from polymer rather than the cotton paper currently used, the
Bank of England said.
