Irish Note

More fake £50 notes have been reported by shop staff in Kendal.

This time, attempts have been made to use counterfeit Irish notes in shops - just days after young people were reported to be passing forged £20s in Barrow.
 
On this occasion, the suspects are described as two girls - aged 13 or 14, with bright pink jackets and black leggings.
 
Last year, there were almost ten reports of teenagers using fake Scottish £20 and £50 notes in the Windermere area.
 
Windermere PCSO Sarah Blacow said: "Please contact police as soon as possible if you see these females, on 101 or 999 if trying to pass them is in in progress."
