Retailers warned about fake £50 notes

Police are warning retailers in Norfolk to be extra vigilant, after receiving reports of fake £50 notes being used to make purchases in retail premises. 
Two incidents are reported to have taken place in Church Plain in Loddon on Thursday 23 January 2020 where a fake Scottish £50 note has been used to pay for low value items.

There have also been further reports of fake £50 notes being used for payment in Emneth. 
Retailers are being urged to take crime prevention measures, such as using a UV light or a testing pen, which will indicate whether a note is genuine. 
Anyone who is offered counterfeit notes, or has any information about those involved in the circulation of counterfeit money can contact Norfolk Police on 101. 

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. 

For those incidents already reported, investigations are ongoing.
