Not long left to spend your £10s

Empty your purses and piggy banks and look under the sofa, because there is not long left to spend your £10 notes. On Thursday 1st March the Bank of England will withdraw the legal tender status of £10 notes, which will be replaced by a new polymer note including new anti-fraud features. The notes can still be used as normal until 1st March and you can exchange them at the Bank of England. According to the Bank of England, there are still at least £2.1bn worth of old £10 notes needing to be spent or exchanged, so make sure your notes don't go to waste!
