BUSINESSES in Market Rasen are being warned to look out for fakes after a man attempted to pass forged £50 notes in the town on Monday.

A police spokesman said: “As there is now a new style £50 being issued, many people are unaware of what it looks like.

“Take a look at the Bank of England website and their many detailed security features on each note.

“Please take the extra time to check each note, and if you’re not confident about the authenticity, ask for alternative payment or refuse the sale.

“And if the note doesn’t have the security features on and is forged, give us a call on 101 too.”
