Warning over fake £20 notes in Norwich

£20 note

Police are warning residents and retailers to be extra vigilant after reports of fake £20 notes being passed on in the city.

There have recently been a number of reports where fake notes have been passed on in shops, particularly in Sprowston and around the Aylsham Road area.

Retailers are being urged to be vigilant and to take crime prevention measures, such as using a UV light or a testing pen which will indicate whether a note is genuine.

PC Jamie Willetts said: "It’s concerning to hear of these fake notes being circulated and I would ask people to examine cash carefully. If someone tries to offer you any fake notes, or you know any information about those involved in the circulation of counterfeit money, please contact Norfolk Police on 101 or you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
